And now a little history of this holiday. Nooruz is celebrated on March 21, on the day of the vernal equinox - the equality of day and night, and marks the beginning of the new year.
The Nooruz holiday begins with the sounds of a kerney - a wind instrument. National dishes are displayed on the table covered with a white tablecloth, and the obligatory attribute of a solemn meal is sumolok.
Sumolok is prepared from sprouted grains of wheat, which are ground and then boiled in a cauldron in oil with the addition of other ingredients for 20-24 hours. Small stones are also added to the cauldron so that the sumolok does not burn. It is believed that if you find one of these stones in your cup with a sumolok, you can make a wish, and it will definitely come true.
Soumolok takes a long time to prepare, so women, in order to pass the time and fill the atmosphere of cooking with positive energy, accompany the whole process with songs, dances and playful funny games.
If snow falls in Nooruz, it is considered to be good luck. On the night before Nooruz, various containers are filled with spring water, milk and grains so that there will be a lot of rain and a good harvest next year. It is customary to tidy up your house, distribute debts and ask for forgiveness from those whom you once offended.
The whole holiday is accompanied by festivals, national games and dances.
