Thank you Paymaan, for your
Thank you Paymaan, for your elucidating post! I had forgotten the Persian new year, and I should know better; I had some lovely friends and coworkers, a couple of whom were Zoroastrian, and were kind enough to school me in the traditions you mentioned. (Incredibly intelligent computer geeks, I liked working with them.:) I didn't know that colouring eggs was part of the traditions though, that is great to know. Truly part of the great cradle of civilization. My boss said it had traditionally been not Patriarchy, but more of a Matrilineal and Goddess based religion originally. Do you know if that is true? Many thanks, and happy Newruz!
