        Zoroastrian New Year | Religion & Ethics Newsweekly

        This video from Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly shows Farzad Aidun sharing his family's celebration of Norooz, or Nowruz, at their home in Maryland. Norooz, the ancient Zoroastrian spring festival of the New Year, celebrates the symbolic victory of light, goodness and fire in a two-week festival that begins on the spring equinox. The video shows Aidun laying an elaborate table of apples, garlic and wheat, and describing the role of fire and light as signs of knowledge and wisdom.
