Mehregan is originally an old-Iranian and pre-Zoroastrian feast consecrated to the sun-god, Mithra, protector of promises and contracts. But later this festival was integrated into Zoroastrian culture and is celebrated every year as the festival of light, love and gratitude for life. In the Zoroastrian calendar it takes place in the first part of Autumn, usually in October when the length of day becomes equal to night (fall equinox). This festival takes six days and after Norouz, the Zoroastrian New Year, Mehregan is the most important among the Zoroastrian festivals.
