Μια ιρανική γιορτή αφιερωμένη στη μεγαλύτερη και σκοτεινότερη νύχτα της χρονιάς, με παραδοσιακές γεύσεις και μουσικές, θα γευτούμε αυτήν την Παρασκευή στο Στέκι, μετά τις 22:00.
Στο μπαρ οι φίλοι μας από το Ιράν και η Room39.

Shab-e Yalda («Yalda night» Persian: شب یلدا‎) or Shab-e Chelleh («night of forty», Persian: شب چله‎) is an Iranian festival celebrated on the «longest and darkest night of the year,» Yalda is a winter solstice celebration, that is, in the night of the Northern Hemisphere’s winter solstice. Calendrically, this corresponds to the night of December 20/21 (±1) in the Gregorian calendar, and to the night between the last day of the ninth month (Azar) and the first day of the 10th month (Dey) of the Iranian civil calendar.

The longest and darkest night of the year is a time when friends and family gather together to eat, drink and read poetry (especially Hafez) until well after midnight.

Fruits and nuts are eaten and pomegranates and watermelons are particularly significant. The red color in these fruits symbolizes the crimson hues of dawn and glow of life.
