Novruz is one of the most popular and most ancient holidays of the Azerbaijani people. He is celebrated with great scope both in the "Country of Lights" and in all large Azerbaijani communities abroad. The holiday symbolizes the renewal of nature with the advent of spring, and the president and the first lady of the country take part in the capital's celebrations.
In fact, this is practically a national alternative to the New Year, but with even greater participation of the people. In all the yards, fires are lit, sweets are prepared, games are played and shared with all the prepared sweets. And as for the festive table - he is especially rich these days with an abundance of national sweets and dishes. There is also a rule of seven "s" - on the table there are seven dishes beginning with the letter "s", including "samani" or "semeni" - sprouted wheat on a platter.
The most important value of the holiday is, in our opinion, it is - uniting all the heat, which does not matter age, social status or other criteria. During the day, families cook sweets together, and in the evening they go down to the courtyard, where various fun takes place - games, jumping over the fire, songs, dances and festive mood reign everywhere.
