Millions of Iranians have gone outdoors to celebrate the last day of Nowruz festivities in nature and in company of friends and families.


Gorgan, northern Iran

Persian New Year (Nowruz) festivities continue for 12 days and on the 13th day people attend picnics or parties in a tradition called Sizdah Bedar.


Tehran

On this day families enjoy the final day of their New Year holidays in the woods, mountains or along streams and rivers to avoid the bad luck associated with the number thirteen.


Kerman

People throw their Sabzeh which has symbolically collected all the sickness and bad luck, into running water and young girls tie wild grass tops and wish for a happy marriage in the coming year.

Sabzeh (freshly grown greens) is part of the Haft Seen, a table with seven items starting with the letter 'S' which is set to welcome the Persian New Year.
