Off Topic: Happy New Year, In March
For those of my readers who are celebrating it, eid-e shoma mubarak! That's "Happy New Year" for Iran, Afghanistan, and a number of nearby areas. It's a Zoroastrian-derived holiday, on the solar calendar, and thanks to my Iranian wife we celebrate it at home. I can fully endorse the emphasis on special holiday sweets (such as sohan, which I'd describe as a dark saffron-flavored almond brittle) and large quantities of other festive foods. We'll be having a traditional meal of spicy fried fish later on, which fits my Arkansan sensibilities just fine. So, happy new year!
