A few days before the Nevruz celebrations, people who want to be informed about the celebrations continue to investigate the meaning and importance of Nevruz. Nevruz, which is celebrated in different beliefs and traditions, will be realized in March. Here are some details to know about Nevruz …
WHAT IS NEVRUZ?
Nevruz, which has been celebrated with various activities and enthusiasm since the 2nd century AD, means “new day” in Persian. It is celebrated in different ways by people in a vast geography from Central Asia to the Balkans. Nevruz is a day where each nation identifies and symbolizes its own cultural values and is greeted with enthusiasm, in essence celebrating the arrival of spring.
It represents the emergence of the Turks (Göktürks) from Ergenekon, the arrival of spring and the awakening of nature. It is celebrated every year from the 8th century BC to the present day by all Turkic tribes and communities from East Turkistan to the Balkans.
WHEN IS NEVRUZ CELEBRATED?
Nevruz will be celebrated on March 21 this year, like every year. There is a reason why Nevruz is celebrated every year on this date. While the sun gives more heat and light to the southern hemisphere until March 21, this balance is equalized on March 21 and then deteriorates in favor of the northern hemisphere. For this reason, some peoples living in the northern hemisphere celebrate March 21 as the day of awakening and creation for all beings. It is also celebrated in the Anatolian and Central Asian Turkic peoples as the arrival of spring and meaning the departure of the Göktürks from Ergenekon.
