Chahārshanbe Suri (Persian: چهارشنبه ‌سوری‎) is a fire jumping festival, celebrated in Iran.Loosely translated as Wednesday Light, from the word sur which means light in Persian, or more plausibly, consider surto be a variant of sorkh (red) and take it to refer either to the fire itself or to the ruddiness (sorkhi), meaning good health or ripeness, supposedly obtained by jumping over it, is an ancient Iranian festival dating back to at least 1700 BCE of the early Zoroastrian era.The words Chahar Shanbeh mean Wednesday and Suri means red. Bonfires are lit to "keep the sun alive" until early morning. one of the tradition of this day is to make special Ajeel, or mixed nuts and berries. Receiving of the Ajeel is customary, as is receiving of a bucket of water.By sending Persian nuts, be with your friends and family virtually and share the happiness and joy.
