Event Poster for Yalda Night
The Winter Solstice known as “Shabe -Yalda” is the longest night of the year, after which days get longer gradually. In Persian culture, this is celebrated as a metaphorical birth of the Sun (Mehr) and the triumph of light, love, and goodness or the powers of oppression and darkness. Celebrations include reading poetry,
comradery, feasting, storytelling, and love. It is treated as an all-night endeavor and celebrated in different ways by different communities.
