Haft-sin also spelled as Haft-seen (Persian: هفت‌سین‎, the seven seen’s) is a tabletop (sofreh) or (Haft Mewa,هفت میوه, the seven fruits) arrangement of seven symbolic items traditionally displayed at Nowruz, the Iranian new year. The haft-seen table includes seven items all starting with the letter Seen (letter) (fa) (س) in the Persian alphabet, all of which represent important concepts in Persian culture.
