It is celebrated on the day of the astronomical Northward equinox, which usually occurs on March 21 or the previous/following day depending on where it is observed.

Afghan-American musician Ariana Delawari shares the unique personal story of how she re-connected with her homeland in this thought provoking documentary. Born and raised in Los Angeles to a loving family that had never forgotten its Afghan roots, Ariana's life is turned upside down after 9/11. When her parents move back to Kabul to help with reconstruction, Delawari spends a decade documenting their transition and her own awakening, through music, to her Afghan heritage. – AP
