Happy Baha'i Naw-Ruz
My neighbors are members of the Baha'i Faith, and invited me to celebrate Naw-Ruz at an open house this afternoon.

Basically, Naw-Ruz marks the end of their 19 day fast, celebrates their New Year, and the coming of Spring. The official date was March 21, but since this is the weekend, they held it today. Apparently, for American members of the Baha'i Faith, a potluck dinner, or open house is pretty common.

Anywho, there was lots of interesting Persian and Iranian food, lots of nice people, and I learned something about another culture / religion. They read the "Tablet of Naw Ruz", (which I now understand thanks to Wikipedia, because they recited it in Farsi), sang a song, and we ate.
