What is needed to set up the Haft Seen table for the Persian New Year celebration? My Persian Haft Seen takes a charming look at the individual items that together create the Seven Seens ornamental display that is at the heart of the Spring Nowruz holiday celebrated in Iran, Afghanistan, Central Asia, the Caucasus and other communities around the world. Tastefully colored drawings and enchanting short descriptions introduce the young reader to the beloved ancient holiday tradition. A parent's guide gives an overview of the meaning of the Haft Seen table.
