Photographer's Note

"Chahar shanbe Souri" is a night before the last Wednesday of Pesian year. It is an ancient symbolic tradition in which Iranians do some fire plays. This tradition, alike Norouz, dates from Pre-Islamic times.

The last Wednesday of the year is celebrated by the Iranian people as Chahar Shanbe Soori (CharShanbe Soori), when people go into the streets and alleys, make fires, and jump over them while singing the traditional song "Zardie man az tou Sorkhie tou az man" (literally: I give you my yellow, you give me your red (the color of the fire), but figuratively: My paleness (sickness) to you, your ruddiness (health) to me).
also in cities, firecrackers and explosions could be heard everywhere in this years unfortunately.
