Happy  Sepandarmazgan




Sepandarmazgan is the celebration day of Love, Friendship and Earth in ancient Persian culture.

According to Iranian tradition, the day of Sepandarmazgan was bring held in the Great Persian Empire in the 20th century BC That is the national title of the Earth and the Earth is the symbol of Love & modesty.

This day is registered on Bahman 29th in the Iranian Calendar .Only 3 days After Valentine.

Persians have a rich culture with many great feasts based on natural occasions that have been mixed up with happiness & Joy.

In the feast of Sepandarmazgan, Earth was worshiped and women venerated. On this day, Women and girls sat on the throne and men and boys had to obey them and bring them presents and gifts. In this way, men were reminded to acclaim and respect women.

Sepandarmaz is another name for mainyu (earth) meaning Holy, Humble & Passionate.

Also Sepandarmaz is Earth Guardian Angel .It is the symbol of humbleness, it means modest toward the entire creation. These are the qualities attributed to Earth that spreads beneath our feet, thus the symbol of modesty and love. As human beings, there are creatures that we find unpleasant and repulsive, but Earth is not like us. She embraces all creatures the same and loves them the same; like a mother who loves all children alike, even when they are ugly. In our ancient culture, mother is symbolized by sepandarmaz or earth. Have you ever seen a Love more sacred than Mother’s Love to children?

Why is the fifth of Espand called Sepandarmazgan?

In ancient  Iran” each day of the month had a name, and all months had 30days. For example, the first day was called Ahuramazda, the second day; Bahman which is the first attribute of God, the third day was called Ordibehesht meaning truth and purity which again are attributes of God. The fourth day is called Shahrivar, meaning ideal kingship that belongs to God who rules the whole universe. The cryptic meaning of this word is that in the same way that God rules over the heavenly bodies, we should rule our bodies with good thoughts, words and deeds. This brings us to the fifth day Sepandarmaz. Another rule here was that whenever the name of a day coincided with that of the month, a feast was held. So we have the feast of sepandarmazgan on the sepandarmaz day of the month of Esfand (originally Spand or Espand). Similarly, the 16th day of any month is called Mehr and we have the feast of Mehrgan on the 16th day of the month of Mehr which was one of the most important feasts of the past. The day of Aban in the month of Aban is the day of another feast called Abangan, and was used as an occasion to appreciate and worship water and the day of Azar in the month of Azar, called Azargan was the feast of appreciation of fire and so forth. In the feast of Sepandarmazgan, Earth was worshiped and women venerated. On this day, Royal women and girls sat on the throne and men and boys had to obey them and bring those presents and gifts. In this way, men were reminded to acclaim and respect women.

And after the Persian calendar is changed The six first months have 31days and the last five months have 30 days and only Esfand has 29 days that will change to 30 days in a four years period and Sepandarmazgan moved from 5th of Esfand 29th of Bahman, *17th Feb*.

Happy Sepandarmazgan …

Happy Love & Friendship day…

Sepandārmazgān (in Persian: سپندارمذگان)[1] is the celebration day of love and earth in ancient Iranian culture. This day is dedicated to Spenta Armaiti, Spandārmad in Middle Persian, the Middle Iranian language/ethnolect of Southwestern Iran that during Sassanid times (224-654 CE) became a prestige dialect and so came to be spoken in other regions as well.

It is celebrated the 29th of Bahman in Iranian calendar. Modern folklore dates the celebration to ancient times and Zoroastrian tradition

روز سپندارمذگان از دیر باز در تاریخ کهن سرزمین مادری ، با نام روز زن و زمین و عشاق شناخته شده است و دیر پایی آن بسیار فراتر از ولنتاین غربی است . شایسته است بانوی ایرانی را در این روز ارج نهیم و دختران و پسران سرزمین کهن تنها با چهار روز شکیبایی روز عشاق را در ۲۹ بهمن ماه خورشیدی با معشوق خود جشن بگیرند .
گامهایی این چنین ، ما را در پاسداشت هویت ایران ۸۰۰۰ هزار ساله استوار تر خواهد نمود - جوانان ایرانی را در این رستاخیز فرهنگی فراخوانید . دوست عزیز برای استحکام پایه های تمدن ایرانی این متن را برای لیست دوستان و یا کلوب های خودتان ارسال کنید و ضمنآ‌ پیشنهاد می کنم با فرستادن پیام کوتاه به دیگردوستان خود این نکته را یاد آوری کنید و آنها را به برگزاری جشن عشاق در ۲۹ بهمن فرا خوانید .

I believe the celebration day for Sepanarmaz is still 5th day of the 12th month, 5th of Esfand. It is still the same in our current, Zoroastrian calendar.
