The Purpose of the Old Tradition (Shabe´ Yalda)


Today is the Winter Solstice, and as you see, I am making an extra post, not only because of this but also for the shortest day (what a day, I have the light on!) and longest night. This night in Iran is traditionally called Yalda Night: Shabe-Yalda. On Yalda night, the whole family gathers around the fireplace in the warm room, and the grandmother tells old legends and fairytales while cracking many kinds of nuts. I once shared an article on this topic; here. However, on these days and nights in Iran, there is no time for any celebration but fighting for their right to live in freedom; I, nevertheless, share this short manifest to send my prayers to them and keep the hope it will be celebrated in the next year.

I wish you all a peaceful, blessed winter solstice and a happy season.🤗💖🦋🌹🙏💖

    • My dear Deborah, your words made me forget all my pains and sufferings, even if for a while. I thank you wholeheartedly. I wish you a blessed and leisurely season and a peaceful and healthy new year, as I keep hoping to have your heart further, my lovely sister. Somehow, I have a good feeling for all of us in the coming year. Love to you.

    Prayers and peace to the people of Iran, especially the women who have so much to gain and so much to lose. Their courage is astounding. Thank you for all you do to make the world a better place.
