“Tarof” Moments…What does it really mean?

I have been asked by a few people to write about the one and only fabulous word (action? behavior?… I am not even sure).. TAROF.

There have been many times where I wish I could just explain what the word really means to someone non-Iranian… and it is such a struggle for me. Definition by example is the way to go. And even then, people seem confused but that is part of the fun!

So, I will be having a series of Tarof posts when I see/hear/witness aTarof Moment”

And side note…I did look it up just now to see if a definition exists for this.. It does! Click here for that.

The first one will be about.. the payment experience. I will stop there for now. Stay tuned!
