Word of the Day- mah

In honor of the Supermoon:

ماه / mah / moon; month

Not only does mah mean moon or month, but when you call a woman (not a man) mah, it means you think that she is wonderful and beautiful and perfect in every aspect! Why? Because in Iranian culture, the moon is a symbol of beauty- especially mahe shabe chahardah, the full moon

Khaharam kheyli mahe! My sister is a real moon [wonderful, beautiful, etc]. 

If there is something you can do really well, you do it mesle mah, like the moon.

She can speak Persian mesle mah! (With languages, of course, you can also use mesle bolbol.)

She can cook mesle mah

She sings mesle mah!

Hoping I'll catch a glimpse of the Supermah tonight!
