Photographer's Note

20 March will be start for Iranian new year.
the calendar in Iran is like Anno Domini,it's not like Anno Hegirae.
In Iran region,beginning of spring is 20 March,and it's first day of "Farvardin" month.
Iran will goes to "1384" which has a root like Anno Hegirae,but it's "Anno Shamsie" based on solar system.

Also,before Islamic revolution in 1979,Iran has An Anno Shamsie which was based on first Kingdom in Iran in 2554 years ago,and we used that calendar,too.

The celebration of new year is not a street celebration,all will be in their home,together and sit around a table and in a special time that will say by media and all know it,the new year will begin.

The Red Fish is one of great element which all the people buy a couple of those and will have it in the table.
I will say more about Iranian new year next.

Please see a simple shot when the people are buying the fishes.
