My Dad is Iranian and so I know a bit about Persian culture (Not muslim though)
The Iranian new year is soon, well next month.
There is usually a table set with 7 S's. Can't name them all but it involves coins, sweets and a table cloth is one as well.
I think another tradition is to grow something and throw it away or something. I used one of my Dads socks one year to grow cress and then we threw it in the river (confused about that really)
New year is the time to get new clothes and visit family. Traditionally the youngest/furthest in the family travels to the next oldest and so on until everyone is together. The celebration is meant to involve a lot of dancing and food as well I think.
I'm not all that clear on all the meanings behind it and some of the celebrations, wasn't really interested in it as a kid and hated having two cultures. It is very different from the Bristish new year.
