Nowrouz 1397 Celebration in Kansas

Dear Iranian Community and Friends,
Among Aria Group KC’s goals is to provide affordable social events and programs to the Iranian Community and friends in Kansas City.  This goal can only achieved through our nonprofit organization platform that allows us to receive such generous donations as we have this year.   For instance, we would have had to charge a $63 ticket price in order to break even for this year’s Norooz celebration with Hamid Talebzadeh, Saba Group and Atash, but by using donation funds we were able to reduce the ticket price for you to $35.  We would like to give a warm thanks to those who donated to Aria Group KC. 

If you would like to donate, please contact us at (816) 536-3343 or email us at ariagroupkc@gmail.com.

One of the keys for a successful nonprofit organization is transparency.  Please find the financial detailed aspect of the Norooz 1397 celebration for your review.

Norouz 1394 - Haji Firouz
Norouz 1395
Nowruz the Iranian and Zoroastrian New Year's day, is celebrated on March 21st - the spring equinox in the northern hemisphere. It is also the first day of the Zoroastrian Khorshidi (solar) year.
​Nowruz is a national holiday celebrated by Iranians of virtually all ethnicities and religions. Celebrations may date back to Cyrus the Great’s reign in the sixth century B.C. Many of the season’s traditions have roots in Zoroastrianism, an ancient monotheistic faith still practiced by some 25,000 in Iran.
Haji Firooz Haji Firooz is a fictional Persian character symbolizing happiness who heralds Norooz.  Wearing a bright red costume and playing a tambourine, Haji Firooz spreads good cheer and ushers in the New Year singing and dancing through the streets.
Haft Seen Table One of the most important Nowruz traditions is setting the haft seen table, which includes seven symbolic items all starting the with an “s” sound:
•  Sabzeh (sprouted wheat grass): For rebirth and renewal
•  Samanu (sweet pudding): For affluence and fertility
•  Senjed (sweet, dried lotus tree fruit): For love  
•  Serkeh (vinegar): For patience and wisdom gained through aging
•  Sir (garlic): For medicine and maintaining good health
•  Sib (apples): For health and beauty
•  Sumac (crushed spice made from reddish berries): For recalling the sunrise


Additional items on the table include:
•  Mirror: To reflect on the past year
•  Live goldfish in a bowl: To represent new life
•  Orange in a bowl of water: To symbolize the Earth
•  Decorated eggs: For fertility
•  Coins: For future prosperity
•  Books of classical poetry and/or the Koran: For spirituality

Fire Jumping
On the last Wednesday of the year, Iranians set up bonfires in public places and leap over the flames in a ritual, Chahar Shanbeh Soori, thought to ensure good health for the year. People sing the following song addressing the fire while jumping:
Give me your beautiful red color and take back my sickly pallor!
