"Naw-Rúz is one of nine holy days for Bahá’ís worldwide and the first day of the calendar occurring on the vernal equinox, around March 21," according to Bahaikipedia. "Norouz, historically and in contemporary times, is the celebration of the traditional Iranian new year holiday and is celebrated throughout the countries of the Middle East and Central Asia such as in Iran, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, and Turkey. Since ancient times it has been a national holiday in Iran and was celebrated by more than one religious group. The Báb, and then Bahá’u’lláh, adopted the day as a holy day and associated it with the Most Great Name of God."
