We would not hold winter Olympics in mid-June nor would we expect flowers to bloom in mid-January.  Wouldn’t it be ridiculous to look for fall colors in April, or spring thaw in August?  Then, why do we celebrate Maidyozarem (Mid-Spring) Gâhambâr in early fall? and Navrooz (first day of spring) in mid-Summer? Let us explore and appreciate “Mazdayasni Calendar”; a Perfect Calendar, as revealed to us in Bundahishn. Get in tune with nature – follow Nature’s calendar.
