On Navruz majority of people buy new clothes and wear their clothes on the Navruz day, it’s our tradition . On Navruz people make “Sumanak”. Sumanak as a grass. From sumanak people make flat cakes. On Navruz day people cook seven dishes. It is our traditions. People make seven things on “shin” and seven things on “sin”. We celebrate our holiday in the downtown. Girls from schools always get ready beautiful nationals dancing. And they wear beautiful nationals dresses “ Chakan” and “Atlas” dresses. One girl must became a white bride of a year, she must wear white dress. And white bride mean happiness. And the other girl must to wear green dress as a spring. And green bride mean a green grass around and anew life, because in spring every things blossom and animals and birds appeared. On Navruz people bake testy cookies and lay a beautiful dastarhan with seven “shin” and seven “sin”. Navruz is a great holiday.
