Today the length of the day and the night will be equal. Is there a word or an expression for this special calendar day in Russian or in English? In Azerbaijani it is Novruz, in Turkish it is Nevruz, both of which are derived from a similar word in Persian. Today there are celebrations and parties in some of the Turkic and Persian countries across the world. The information from the other languages is also welcome.

It's called "equinox" and comes from Latin.

In English, today is the Equinox. It comes from Latin. It isn't really a big holiday in America sadly. Also, the name of the days when the length of day (or night) is as long as possible is Solstice.

Equinoxe, en français, même s'il manque la moitié du terme pour être complet : "Nuit égale" ok, mais égale à quoi ? Il faudrait inventer un néologisme du genre "Equinoxedie" (" Nuit égale au jour") ! Mais, là je pousse peut-être le bouchon trop loin !! Bon travail à toutes et à tous.
