Sizdah-be-Dar

The 13th of Nowruz is called SizdahbeDar (“getting rid of thirteen”). On this day, people leave their houses and go picnicking in the country. At the end of the picnic, they throw their plateful of sabzeh into running water. The sabzeh is supposed to have collected all the sickness and ill fate that lurks in the path of the family throughout the coming year. Touching someone else's sabzeh on this day or bringing it home therefore is not a good idea because it may result in absorbing someone else's pain and hardship. Another meaningful ritual performed with the dumping of sabzeh, is that young single women tie the sabzeh leaves prior to discarding it, symbolizing the wish to be tied in a marriage by the SizdahbeDar of the next year.
