Navruz, also Novruz (from Persian "new day") is a holiday of the arrival of spring according to the astronomical solar calendar among the Iranian and Turkic peoples. Novruz is a national tradition that has no direct relation to Islamic customs. In modern times, it is celebrated on the days on which the vernal equinox falls. On September 30, 2009, Navruz was included by UNESCO in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Mankind, since that time March 21 has been declared as the International Day of Navruz.
