http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bah%C3%A1'%C3%AD_Naw-R%C3%BAz 

---------------------------------------------------

Naw-Rúz is one of nine Bahá'í holy days where work and school must be suspended; [3] the only one that is not associated with an event in the lives of either the Báb or Bahá'u'lláh. [4]

It is usually a festive event observed with meetings for prayer and music and dancing. [9] [10]  

Since the new year also ends the Bahá'í month of fasting the celebration is often combined with a dinner.[10] [11]

As with all Bahá'í holy days, there are few fixed rules for observing Naw-Rúz, and Bahá'ís all over the world celebrate it as a festive day, according to local custom. [1]

Persian Bahá'ís observe many of the Iranian customs associated with Nowruz such as the Haft Sîn, but American Bahá'í communities, for example, may have a potluck dinner, along with prayers and readings from Bahá'í scripture.
