The oldest of Iranian traditions, Nowruz recalls the cosmological and mythological times of Iran. The celebration is organized according to the dynamics of love between the Creator and his creation, the material world. The word “Nowruz” is a compound of two Persian words, “now” which has the same etymology as the English word “new” and means new, and the word “ruz” which means both “day” and “time.” Literally meaning the “new day,” nowruz is usually translated as “new year.” The Persian Nowruz begins on the first day of spring (usually the 21st of March). The 21st of March, therefore, is equal to the 1st day of Farvardin of the Islamic solar calendar.(farsi.net)
In Pakistan, Nowruz also celebrated across Gilgit Baltistan enthusiastically. There is all the time fun in Skardu during Nowruz festival. People cook traditional food at homes. In skardu, egg fight is the most anticipated thing in Nowruz festival. People collect eggs and paint them with bright colours. Newborn babies are also rolled on dry fruits and sweets. These sweets are distributed in family and friends. Polo match and other traditional sports are also there to enhance the splendor of Nowruz festival.
