While exploring the Iranian media, i found these photos quite refreshing, specially for those Iranians who live abroad. Now probably every house in Iran is clean & shinny & Sabzeh* is grown.
I read on Wikipedia that in Afghanistan, Albania, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, Georgia, Iraqi Kurdistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan & Kosovo also they observe the arrival of spring, along with Uyghurs and Salars in China.
However, even if i was not an Iranian, i would really prefer spring to the cold freezing winter. Or maybe that’s just me; i love sandals more than boots!
I must admit that i’ve caught a bad cold just in last days of winter. By the way, my Sabzeh seems quite lame this year since i tried to grow green beans for the first time. I had to do it at least a week sooner & they don’t seem to grow enough until new year eve . Only 5 days to go and my Sabzeh needs a miracle!
Well, That’s how the sticky winter is going to finally ends. Doesn’t matter. Let it go. I can’t wait for Spring
* Sabzeh is wheat, barley, mung bean or lentil sprouts growing in a dish – In Iranian culture, it symbolises the rebirth
