Now Ruz is a time anticipated by Iranians all over the world. The Iran Times asked Iranians across the United States to share fond, funny and nostalgic memories of Now Ruz, and also asked full bred Americans about their runins with seemingly random Now Ruz traditions. Omid Salahi, a scientist living in San Francisco, told the Iran Times, "In the house that I grew up in [in the U.S.] as a kid, I remember we had had a really nosy and paranoid neighbor. On charhshanbe souri one year, as we were jumping over fires in the driveway and chanting the ancient Zoroastrian chant, we all of a sudden noticed our motion sensor light go off. We looked up to see our neighbor stopped in front of our house with her jaw completely dropped and her mouth wide open. She must have thought we were doing some voodoo witchcraft! As soon as she saw us looking back at her, she quickly--without saying a word--speed-walked back to her house. Needless-to-say, there was a long period of time when we didn't see or hear from our neighbor."
