This ancient ritual has long been prevalent among Iranians, during which people celebrated and danced to warm the earth and revive it. Since the fire was precious to the Iranians in the past and symbolized enlightenment and wisdom, our ancestors used to worship God in a spiritually-filled atmosphere on Wednesday. And the word Chaharshanbeh Suri ) Suri Wednesday(; this word is made up of two words, Wednesday is one of the days of the week, and suri means celebration and joy. In ancient Iran, there was a huge fire on Tuesday evening celebrating the Syrian Wednesday and kept it lit until sunrise. The ceremony started with the fire and jumping out of the fire and somehow welcomed the spring. Fortunately, this ancient ritual has survived from the past until now and has its own customs in various parts of Iran, which is the burning point of all of them.

the History of Chaharshanbeh Suri

Chaharshanbeh Suri, also known as the celebration of the year-end Wednesday and Red Wednesday night, is one of the great Iranian celebrations held on the night of the last Wednesday of every year (Tuesday night), essentially the first celebration before Nowruz. . Generally, the word "charshanbeh Suri" is made up of a combination of two words "Wednesday" (the name of one of the days of the week) and surri meaning "celebration". According to ancient Iranian rituals, a great fire has been lit on this day and continues until the morning sun rises tomorrow. By Tuesday noon when the fire is lit, people jump on it and repeat the phrase "My yellow from you, your red from me"; that means cleansing and religious cleansing; on the other hand By saying this, people are calling for the fire to eliminate the yellowing and their problems and diseases and to give them redness, warmth and a new force to start the New Year. Ferdowsi's Shahnameh refers to Wednesday's New Year's Eve celebration, which indicates that the festival is old and old. Traditional ceremonies and rituals of this national holiday have been embedded in the culture of the Iranian people from the past to the present day. On the other hand, Katayoun Mazdapour, author and researcher of Zoroastrianism on Wednesday, said that "Iranian celebrations and rituals belong to all Iranians. Many of them go back to the pre-Aryan period, and many have never been to Zoroastrianism, such as Chaharshanbeh Suri.
