Ripple effect

At the moment of Norooz (Saal Tahveel), one of the items on the Haft Seen is supposed to move. I had heard that it's the apples placed in the fish bowl. But all four who responded said it's the movement of the colored eggs that signifies the beginning of the new year.

Also Viviane wrote: The egg placed on the mirror moves- or in some houses the narenj placed in a bowl of water. Some people also say the golf fish. The bull of time carries for a whole year the world on one of its horns. He will move his head to move the globe over to the other horn, resulting in a tremor that will make the egg, the fish or the orange roll.

Winner: Fred Saberian. Sad Afarin!
