Each year I put up a Haft-Sin table, which is a Persian tradition, not a Baha’i one. Though this year I didn’t get all of the elements (I had no apples or oranges in my home), I did manage to purchase a fish, and I had everything else. I even grew the grass! Happy Naw-Ruz!

“The physical sun has its rising and its setting. The earthly world has its day and its night. After each sunset there is a sunrise and the coming of a new dawn. The Sun of Reality, likewise, has its rising and setting. There is a day and a night in the world of spirituality. After each departure there is a return and the dawning light of a new day.” -‘Abdu’l-Baha
