One of the feasts celebrated in Ottomans was nawruz. Nawruz ceremonies were held at Topkapı Palace in İstanbul by statesmen and at the outside of the palace by public. In contrast to common belief, poems written for aforesaid feast were not named as "nawruziyyeh". Beside to these poems, courtirs used to give presents to each others and desserts special for nawruz were made. Here these aforesaid traditions were called "nawruziyyeh" in Ottomans. We approve that presents given in nawruz and desserts made in those times took an important place as much as nawruziyyeh a literary genre in Ottoman culture
