Persians might have converted to Islam, but many Iranians have kept a lot of their pre-Islamic #Zoroastrian culture and traditions alive.

I read one such refreshing story today on Quora.

Sharing some details here in the thread below.
1) Iranians were mostly of Zoroastrianism religion before the conquest of Islam. Yes, they are mostly Shia Muslims today, but they know about Zoroastrian Ahura Mazda sacred book, and Rasti - Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds.
Some might be even wearing The #Faravahar pendant. Image
2) Iranians even today celebrate their traditional #Zoroastrian new Year Novruz at Pasargad (Tomb of Cyrus The Great). Keep in mind in 2020, #Novruz was just 5 days before the Hindu Near Year festival of Yugadi! Similar calendars.

Even Persian Tajik women celebrate similarly. ImageImageImage
