Tehran's Sa'ad Abad Cultural Complex is to set Iran's largest Haft Seen during a festival to celebrate the Persian New Year, Nowruz.

Ambassadors of the Persian-speaking countries in Tehran will attend the unveiling ceremony of the Haft Seen on March 21st, 2010.

Iranians welcome the New Year by wearing new clothes and setting the Haft Seen, a table containing seven items starting with the letter 'S'; Sabzeh (freshly grown greens), Samanou (A type of traditional pudding), Senjed (Jujube), Seeb (Apple), Seer (Garlic), Sumac and Serkeh (vinegar).

‘Haft Seen is a symbolic part of Persian New Year and we have taken into consideration the various historical, cultural and artistic features of the Iranian people in designing Iran's largest Haft Seen,’ CHTN quoted festival director Roqayyeh Hatami as saying.

Organized by Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization (ICHHTO), the Nowruz festival will also hold handicraft exhibitions and promote Iran's tourism industry.

The Persian New Year coincides with the first day of spring on the solar calendar.

For Iranians, Nowruz is a celebration of renewal and change, a time to visit relatives and friends, and pay respect to senior family members.
