Happy Norooz!

Today is Norooz, the Persian New Year marking the first day of spring. I'm pleased to wish a happy Norooz to all!

Norooz has many traditions and symbols, including the goldfish which represents life. Colorful goldfish are often part of the traditional Norooz table arrangement - called Haft Sin - such as the one in the City Hall rotunda this morning.
