Shab-é-Yaldā is the Persian celebration of the winter solstice. This longest night of the year has been celebrated in the Persianate world for 5000 years. It is an important celebration, second only to the Persian New Year.
On Yaldā night (شب یلدا), after dinner, family members typically gather around a colorful spread of pomegranate, watermelon, persimmon, mixtures of dried fruit and nuts, various Persian confections, and a book of poems by the 14th century Persian poet Hāfez.
For Salt and Ceremony, Dr. Nader Mehravari will present on Yaldā. Salt and Ceremony is the name of the group of 6 sessions that place during the month of December. There are live parts that get recorded, and videos associated with each session.
