On December the 14th, 2018 we hosted Yalda Celebration at Borna Cultural House. Here are a few photos from our event.
Shab-e Yalda ("Yalda night" Persian: شب یلدا) or Shab-e Chelleh ("night of forty", Persian: شب چله) is an Iranian festival celebrated on the "longest and darkest night of the year," Yalda is a winter solstice celebration, that is, in the night of the Northern Hemisphere's winter solstice. Calendrically, 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 Iranian civil calendar.
Thank you to everyone who attended our Yalda Celebration night. We wish all families a safe, fun and peaceful Winter break, have a Merry Christmas and see you in the New Year.
