Happy Nowruz!

Nowruz table 1


Today is Nowruz, the Persian New Year. In the new market hall at Vågmästareplatsen Iranian shopkeepers had set up a Nowruz table. Among other things the table displays sprouting greens (symbol of nature’s reawakening), coloured eggs (symbols of fertility), apples (symbols of the world) and candles (symbols of fire).
