Today is the Persian New Year! Sale no mobarak!
To celebrate people make a table at home with seven things on it that start with the letter -S in Persian. It's is called "haft-seen", seven -s.
You also see a candle (symbol of light), a goldfish (it's not a real one!, symbol of life), an egg (symbol of fertility) and a mirror. I don't know exactly what it stands for... Any one?
