March 21

The Navruz holiday in Uzbekistan is one of the most beloved, colorful and fun-filled celebrations in the country. It is celebrated on March 21, the spring equinox when daylight and darkness are of equal length. Its history can be traced back more than three thousand years to Khorasan Province in northeastern Iran, from where it eventually spread to West and Central Asia.

Navruz (also spelled Nowruz) has its roots in the ancient cult of sun worship and Zoroastrianism, which were once widespread in all of Persia and Central Asia. Navruz first received official status under the Achaemenid Dynasty in the 4th-5th centuries BC, at which time it evolved from an agricultural ritual into a Zoroastrian holiday. Navruz has long been regarded as the traditional New Year for Turkic and Iranian peoples as well as for some Europeans, and the name “Navruz” itself translates from Farsi as New Day. Today it is associated with the rebirth of nature, new life, joy and kindness.

5. When do American people celebrate Easter?

Easter in the United States is celebrated for its religious significance, as well its secular traditions. In many communities, the Christian aspect of the holiday—Jesus's crucifixion and subsequent resurrection—is honored by various religious sects. Most Christian religions observe Lent prior to Easter Sunday, where they set aside time to reflect and fast as a tribute to Jesus's sacrifice and suffering. Then, Lent is broken just prior to Easter Sunday when church services and family gatherings take place.

6. What do people do at Easter? The secular celebration of Easter in the United States is much different. Most families honor the return of spring with pastel-colored Easter eggs, a visit from the Easter Bunny, Easter egg hunts, and candy-filled baskets.
7. Where is Father’s Day celebrated? Father's Day is a day of honouring fatherhood and paternal bonds, as well as the influence of fathers in society. In Catholic countries of Europe, it has been celebrated on March 19 as Saint Joseph's Day since the Middle Ages. In America, Father's Day was founded by Sonora Smart Dodd,[1][2][3] and celebrated on the third Sunday of June for the first time in 1910. The day is held on various dates across the world and different regions maintain their own traditions of honouring fatherhood.
