The spring season in the Middle East begins with a ceremony called Newroz, which many Middle Eastern nations treat as a feast, where they celebrate, rest and travel.  Many of the region’s governments have made those days a holiday as a tribute to Newroz Day.

The important question starts here. What is Newroz?

The beginning of the spring season is called Newroz, which is set on March 21st of every year, with the revival of nature, political and social life and the season of nature, economy and politics in the Middle East.  This is called the Newroz Feast and has a great value for the nations of the Middle East.

Kurds, Iranians, Indians, Pashtuns, Afghans, and a part of Turks celebrate Newroz and look at it as a part of their culture, and this appears as a global and international feast, but differently in all nations.  They look at Newroz very importantly and celebrate it, and they have a special ceremony for the event, and every Kurd on that day prepares himself differently from the others.

Why are Kurds celebrating Newroz?

According to the Kurdish nation, which is divided into four countries by more than 50 million people, Newroz is not only a celebration of joy and the beginning of the season of renewal of nature, but also a different view of it. They have put on a political cover, as most of the political and social struggles and opposition to the country’s invaders have been carried out in Newroz days and have been tried to advance their political leadership in Newroz.

For example, the Revolution of Sheikh Saeed Piran in northern Kurdistan was against the Ottoman Empire in Newroz, as was the revolution of Sheikh Mahmud Hafid in southern Kurdistan, and in the east of Kurdistan during the Komar of Kurdistan.  All revolutions took place during Newroz.

Kurds consider themselves to be the real owner of Newroz, and that’s why they celebrate it.  They prepare special clothes for themselves and go to the mountains and on the evening of March 21th, they light fire and celebrate and dance, which is a historical reminder of the past centuries.  Back then, the brutal king persecuted the people of the region and was very violent. Thus, the Kurdish people’s revolutionaries have made a revolution against this king by setting fires to the cities and villages, expressing themselves and dancing.

The story of Newroz is the story of the uprising of a nation invaded by the worst tyranny that has killed Kurdish children and committed great injustice against the Kurds. This symbol has been remembered for thousands of years as a great story to this day.

The story about Newroz celebration has strange myths, but the truest story about the emergence of Newroz is due to the fact that on the day, the subjugated nations stood against oppression and rejected the occupation and authority of their enemies, i.e. the revolution of the subjugated nations against oppression, whether religious, cultural or political injustice.

There are now some attempts in the world to make Newroz a world festival like Christmas.  The Kurds clearly believe that this feast has their national mark and should remain the same, and that the world’s nations should respect their independence and new year as a holiday.

Newroz is an important partner in the revival of nature and the uprising against oppression, and on the other hand, it is the beginning of a new year, which for early human beings is a sign of the beginning of work and new life, as a sign of freedom and the symbol of freedom from oppression.
