Happy New Year!

Eid-eh shomah mobarak! =D
(Happy Persian New Year!)

Nowruz (new year) is a perfectly secular holiday, so anyone can celebrate it. Too bad I was such an idiot and let it sneak up on me this year. I really wanted to set up a sofreh-ye haft-sin, which is essentially the equivalent of an Xmas tree for this holiday. Only it's not a tree, it's a table, and it's covered in stuff to promote luck, wealth, health, fertility, and prosperity in the new year. But I totally forgot.

At least my mom got hers set up, and my sister has promised me pictures!

Sheesh. Between the Superbowl, being sick, and Nowruz, it's like homesick++ for me right now.
