It has been an ancient tradition of Iranians to put seven things whose names begin with N at the table they set for Noruz celebrations. Unfortunately, this auspicious tradition changed for mysterious reasons and today the table is set with seven things starting with an "s" or Haft Seen . Therefore, it is our duty to revive the ancient tradition with a new government in play.
The First N
NAAN (bread) is considered a sign of life, abundance and productivity. Some put whole breads on their table, some cut a slice and put it on a plate among other things, and yet others bring both the bread and its oven to their table.
The Second N
NOOR or Naar, meaning fire, which I am going to elaborate on a little later.
The Third N
NAMAK (salt), so that we are grateful and salty, keeping funny and smiling. Some pour the salt in a saucer, some pour it in two saucers, some in three, others in four, and some even in five or more saucers, while others bring the Salt Lake  to the table, the latter being the most popular fashion.
The Forth N
NAKH (thread), so that we are all interconnected to each other, keep our unity, and stay strongly put. Some use a thread of twenty centimeters or so, some a thread of twenty and a half centimeters, and others use reels of thread.
The Fifth N
NEY (reed/flute). Iranians are generally bon vivant. They go to extremes to live happy and joyous lives. Therefore, it is necessary to introduce things into their lives to check excessive joy, lest it ruins their lives. This sorrowful musical instrument on the New Year table is a reminder that there is also sadness and pain in this world. Once they experience sorrow, people will appreciate their joyous moments. But how to provide this reed and bring it to the Noruz table is a question to be asked of Arabs. They can tell us where they have thrown it so that we can go find it and bring it forth to the table.
The Sixth N
NAFT (oil) is present at tables in each and every one of our homes since last year . Oil should be on the Noruz table so that we continuously look at it and know why we are alive, recognize that we should watch its market price closely, and to remind ourselves that we should increase our export of goods other than oil. The aforementioned Naar is lit with this oil, which we can pour in an oil lamp and put over the table. Due to an increase in the price of oil in recent years, some have bought it in bulk, and on their Noruz spread they put a barrel of oil. Richer families buy barrels of Brent oil from the North Sea, while others bring to the table a well of oil, but this latter choice can be a little problematic because one may not find the proper well close by.
The Final N
NARENGI (tangerine): There is no real reason for this item on the New Year spread. It is just a random choice, and can even be replaced by an orange.
 Haft Seen or the Seven Ss is the traditional table that Iranians set for the arrival of their new year, which includes seven things beginning with the alphabet S, each having a specific symbolic meaning
