Iranians celebrated Charshanbe-Suri

n the evening of the last Tuesday of each year, Iranians celebrate a fire festival with its roots in the ancient customs and history of the country. People set up bonfires in the streets and jump over them to cleanse themselves of all the misfortunes and impurities of the past year and get ready to welcome the coming New Year.

This is a warm welcome to Noruz and its attendant customs that precedes the festival of Sizdah Be-dar (lit. “to get rid of thirteen”) a Festival of “Joy and Solidarity” celebrated on the 13th day of the Iranian New Year, which brings the Noruz celebrations to an end.
