Sizdeh Be Dar

Sizdeh Be Dar

Thursday, April 2nd 2015, will be Sizdeh-be-dar (Out with the 13th), the 13th day of the New Year and the day the Haft Seen is put away. Traditionally this is the day you go out for a picnic with your family and friends in hopes to rid the bad luck of the 13th. Sprouts are often released in a river to take the bad luck with them.

And I read this wish for Sizdeh beh dar in Persian and couldn’t help but wish it for you all of you (and loosely translate it for my non-Persian-speaking friends):

امیدوارم با جمع کردن هفت سین نوروزی، کتابش نگهدارتان، آینه اش روشنایی زندگیتان، سکه اش بارکت عمرتان، سبزه اش طراوت وشادابی دلتان، ماهی اش شوق ادامه زندگیتان را به شما هدیه دهد

Omidvaram ba jam kardaneh Haft Seeneh Norouzy,
Ketaab negahdaretoon, ayeneash roshanayi zendegitan, sekkeash barekateh omretoon, sabze’ash taravat va shaadaby deletoon, mahiash shogheh edameh zendegitan ro beh shoma hediyeh dahad.

I hope that with putting away your Haft Seen, the Holy book acts as your protector, the mirror reflects it’s light into your life, the coins bless you with longevity, the sprouts offer you happiness, and the gold fish present you with the zeal to carry your passion forward.

Pishapish Sizdeh Be Dar mobarak! An early Happy Sizde-be-dar!
