- Melisa Jalilian majors in hospitality management at Newbury College and also works at her parents’ Newton business, Fiouna Catering, so she is used to late hours. But early on March 20, Jalilian was up with her parents, Mehrdad and Thara, and brother, Mani, celebrating Norouz, the Persian New Year, which starts precisely at the vernal equinox. This year in Boston, it was at 1:11 a.m.
