Story of the Day

The day starts with walking through the streets of Tehran. Therefore, we’ll see the preparation and the feel of Chaharshanbesuri in town. Then, we’ll continue our adventure by heading to Tajrish bazaar for some Chaharshanbesuri shopping through the secret corner shops. As the evening approaches, we’ll be heading to a public ceremony. Afterward, we’ll experience one of the authentic rituals of Chaharshanbesuri, “ghashogh zani”. We’ll knock on people’s doors with a spoon, and in return, they give us Chaharshanbesuri snacks and treats. Afterward, we’ll be jumping over bonfires with some traditional Persian music and dance. Then, we’ll get to fly our wish balloons into the sky before heading to a private party. So, we’ll end our night at a party with friends and a small local community in Iran to have more in-depth conversations and get to know the Chaharshabesuri traditions beyond our surface knowledge.
