Persian Night – Chaharshanbe Suri
YEU Cyprus, with the collaboration of the fantastic Persian representative of Nicosia, are enthusiastic to invite all of you to the Chaharshanbe Suri!
On Tuesday 14th of March, we will go to the beach next to Larnaca for the famous Persian celebration!
Chaharshanbe Suri is an Iranian festival celebrated on the eve of the last Wednesday before Nowruz (the Iranian New Year), dating back to 1700 BCE of the early Zoroastrian era which is still celebrated widely in Iran and some other countries of the region.
18.30 : meeting at YEU Cyprus Office (Ezekia Papaioannou) and depart to Larnaca with the bus.
At Meneou beach we will make a huge bonfire, Persian kebab (also with vegetarian option).
There will be music, dance and of course the famous fire jumping, where you want the fire to take your pallor, sickness, and problems and replace them with warmth and energy. It is a purification rite, which is traditionally regarded necessary before the arrival of spring.
We will leave from Meneou beach around 11.30.
Participation Fee: 10 Euro (includes the bus trip, food and drinks)
