    as you have mentioned on your title, Persian new year is a very old and historical tradition (more than 5000 years) for celebration of the solar year. this is the actual beginning of Spring in northern hemisphere and Persians were celebrating it with happiness. this table set is a collection of symbolic items , mostly gathered together because of the positive energies that they may convey to people within the next coming year. we call it : "HAFT SIN" which means : 7 S!
    as they all begin with S in Persian language.
