21st December, the longest night of the year. It is the eve of the birth of Mithra, the Sun God, representing the defeat of the powers of darkness. It has been celebrated in many cultures across the world and for Iranians it symbolises light, goodness and strength. Shab-e Yalda (the night of Yalda) is a time of joy, referring to the rebirth of the sun.
