Chahar-Shanbeh-Suri

“Hajji Firuza”, a black faced character in a red costume appears, preceded by another ancient ceremony, “Chahar-shanbeh-Suri (literally meaning “Wednesday Fire”). It is celebrated on the Tuesday evening before the last Wednesday of the old year. At this night, people gather in streets to jump over a fire for good Iuck while chanting: “Your redness (health) is mine; my paleness (pain) is yours“. Groups of young men, their faces concealed by veils, go from door to door banging a spoon against a metal bowl asking for sweets or money. Another old and almost obsolete ritual is falgush (fortune hearing) when people try to guest the future by walking around in the street and treating any chance words as omen.
