Chaharshanbeh Soori in Iran

One of our favorite rituals ahead of the Persian New Year is a fire festival on the eve of the last Wednesday of the outgoing Persian Year. So on the last Tuesday night of the year when the sun goes down, bonfires are lit all over Iran. As a custom of bidding evil adieu and welcoming hope and joy, we jump over bonfires saying an epigram out loud. And that, is just one of our customs for Chaharshanbeh Soori.
