Entry 64

Now it is " 4 shanbeh soori " in Iran ...In ancient Iran it's been a custom to celebrate the last Wednesday of the solar year ... The people made fire, jumped over it & sang a song which implied something originated in mythology ...



It's about 10 years that Iranian boys have started having fun using explosives this night & every year it's becoming worse & worse ...
I'm writing now while hearing sounds of explosions ...
There are very few people who make fire in their gardens or in the street to jump over it ...
It seems that these explosions are going to explode this 10,000 year old custom !
