Party like its 1-3-8-8!

Happy New Year! or should I say Happy Norooz? or even better Ediet Mobarak!
If you have no idea what I am talking about, I am celebrating the Persian New Year. It falls on the first day of spring - doesn't that just make so much more sense, than celebrating the new year in the dead of winter?? Anywho this year the festivities began exactly at 7:44 am, eastern time, March 20th, 2009, although on the Persian calender it is now 1388!
Below I have posted one of the best documentaries I have seen on Iran. Rick Steve covers the rich Persian culture and history of the first civilization. Please watch this video and educate yourself on the real Iran you may not already know.
