People shopping for Yalda Night celebrations 

December 18, 2018

Over the past few days, bazaars are jammed with people shopping for Yalda Night celebrations.

Yalda Night, also known as Shab-e Yalda or Shab-e Chelleh, is the longest and darkest night of the year, marking the last eve of autumn and the beginning of winter.

Many gather in their grandparents’ houses and spend the long night together. Guests are served with fresh fruits such as watermelon, persimmon, and pomegranate as well as colorful Ajil (a mixture of dry fruits, seeds and nuts).
