Norooz for sale

Goldfish have been on sale for awhile, but a couple of days ago the stores started really pushing their Norooz wares. On Norooz, families place displays in their homes that include 7 items starting with the Persian "S" along with items that represent spring and rebirth (eggs, for instance).

 


Oh how the mighty Persians have fallen! From empire to chia pet!

 


Fish, candles, eggs, sprouts, and candles all for sale at the fruit market.

Can you tell people again why you're living in Iran? Assume you're married to an Iranian? As an American, which you say you are, you don't have to live there if unhappy.
