Happy Newroz Everyone!

Newroz is the Kurdish New Year and the biggest celebration of the year. And what a way the Kurds like to celebrate... fires lighting up the countryside, city streets and backyards! I wanna know how many of you would be game to do the karate fire kick??

Here's a little insight for you... Every year on March 21st, the Kurdish people celebrate Newroz. In the Kurdish language, Newroz means “New Day”, by which Kurds mean the first day of spring. The Kurdish calendar begins on this day. Newroz, therefore, is the new day, the first day of the New Year. The Kurdish nation has been celebrating Newroz since the time of ancient history.
