Description

Eid Nouruz is a traditional, non-Islamic holiday celebrating the New Year on the Solar calendar. People traditionally spend the day visiting one another, and spread a table with specific items such as newly-sprouted grass to usher in the new year. In 2006, this day collided with a new Islamic holiday instated by the government, on which people were expected to visit the graveyard. In Sisakht, people reconciled the conflict by taking Eid Nouruz to the graves of their families, as seen in this image. Image group: 330-333.
