Of all the festivals that we celebrate only two of them are celebrated at their proper time. They are Now Rooz and Yalda. Now Rooz is celebrated in the Vernal Equinox and Yalda on the Winter Solstice. The reason that they are celebrated at their proper time is because the Iranian Nation celebrates it with us. Tirgan and Mehregan we were left to ourselves, we have forgotten the science, and instead fallen prey to superstitions. Let us celebrate the science of our ancestors, let us celebrate the other positions of the sun, Mehregan on the Autumnal Equinox, which is on 22 September 2016 corresponding to First of Mehr as per our ancient Mazdayasni Calendarhttp://zarathushticalendar.com/

“The month Mehr, the month Aban, and the month Adar are of Autumn;”     Bundahishn 25:25
