Chaharshanbeh Souri, also called the fire festival, is an Iranian festival held the Tuesday night before the last Wednesday of the year. “Chaharshanbeh Souri” is formed the two words of Chaharshanbeh, or Wednesday, and Souri, meaning “red” and alluding to the redness of fire. This festival is a prelude to Nowruz that itself promises the spring and the novelty of nature (Nowruz, or the “New Day”, is the first day of spring and the Persian New Year).
