Persian Yalda Night Past

Friday, Dec 18, 2015 ,
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
- JKL, Finland

The Persian myths say, on this night the angle of light and truth was born!
Yalda night is an Iranian festival celebrated on the "longest and darkest night of the year, that is, in the night of the Northern Hemisphere's winter solstice. Calendarically, this corresponds to the night of December 20/21 (±1) in the Gregorian calendar, and to the night between the last day of the ninth month (Azar) and the first day of the tenth month (Dey)of the Persian calendar.

Its a time when friends and family gather together to eat, drink and read poetry (especially Khayam or Hafez) until well after midnight. Fruits and nuts are eaten and pomegranates and watermelons are particularly significant. The red color in these fruits symbolizes the crimson hues of dawn and glow of life. The poems of Divan-e-Hafez, which can be found in the bookcases of most Iranians families, are intermingled with peoples' life and are read or recited during various occasions like this festival and at Nowruz.

As the organizer of the event I invite you to join us in this beautiful event full of lights, candles mystical Persian music, dance and poetry! May the dark days pass soon and the sun shines on us once again!
