Lets make "Nowruz- New Day on UN Calendars"

To: United Nations
Excellency Ban Ki-moon
United Nations
New York, New York

Your Excellency,

For several millenniums many nations have celebrated the first day of spring as their new year. Today, nearly 300 million people around the world celebrate the first day of spring as their new year, better known as Norouz (New Day). Nearly all of these celebrants live in UN member nations. Unfortunately, none of the UN calendars or affiliated agencies commemorate this important date as has been done for different celebrations of member nations.

We, the undersigned, request from your Excellency, bearer of the highest office of the United Nations, to kindly authorize the relevant agencies to correct this oversight for the upcoming calendars throughout the UN agencies.

Please accept our best wishes and thanks for your attention to this important request.
