Characterized by diverse styles and themes, traditional Iranian festivals are an important part of the country's history and culture.
Almost every festival has its own unique origins and customs which reflect the traditional practices and morality of the whole Iranian nation and its people. One of the the grandest and most popular festivals is Yalda Night. Iranians have celebrated the longest night of the year for centuries on December 21 of each year.
People on Yalda Night usually get together in the houses of grandparents and the elderly members of their families. However, this year we celebrate the Iranian tradition of Yalda Night without any gatherings because of pandemic.
