Also i would like to apologize for not being able to comment on everyones pics, I have been busy with the new year arrangements

Haft Sîn or the seven ‘S’s is a major tradition of Nowruz [en.wikipedia.org], the traditional Iranian new year.The haft sin table includes seven items specifically starting with the letter S or Sîn (س in the Persian alphabet). he Haft Sin has evolved over time, but has kept its symbolism. Traditionally, families attempt to set as beautiful a Haft Sîn table as they can, as it is not only of traditional and spiritual value, but also noticed by visitors during Nowruzi visitations and is a reflection of their good taste.
Each day until the Iranian New Year (Nowruz) I will post of picture of one of the items, and explain the significance i hope every one enjoys them.
