Happy Yalda to all !

Yalda is a Zoroastrian festival celebrated during the longest night of the year (winter solstice). Yalda means “birth” and Dec. 21st is supppsed to be the day of birth of Mithra. Mithra is the Zoroastrian Divinity of Covenants, Light and Oath.

On this day, there are large gatherings with food and drinks and people read poetry and tell stories. Usually people eat red coloured fruits like watermelon and pomegranate to signify the colours of dawn and glow of life 🍉🍎🍓….. May your Yalda be bright and red 😘!
