I remember when I was little, living in Tehran, our lives as children were simple and empty of most gift giving, toys and stuff in general. I think it was like that in most places but specially in that decade when there was war between my country and a next door country, we were considered lucky if we got our bottle of milk every morning! Let alone luxury of having stuff. When it was our New Year celebration, once a year, on the first day of spring equinox, we would receive money that was carefully placed in-between pages of an old Hafez or Rumi book for months and blessed by our grandparents. Once you were lucky enough to receive this precious, blessed abundance you were then told to save it for future education!! I am not saying that was right or wrong, trust me, it made many of us want materialistic stuff we could not have then...I do believe there must a balance.

Now that I am 37, living in a consumerist western country, I can not help but reflect back on what it means to celebrate...
