Iran prepares for Yalda the longest night of the year
An Iranian worker sets up oranges in a shop in Tehran, Iran on December 20, 2007. Iranians celebrate the longest night of the year known as Shabe Yalda (Yalda Night) or Shabe Chelle. The celebration dates back thousands of years to the time when Zoroastrianism, with its central theme of the struggle between the good spirit Ahura Mazda and the evil Ahriman, was the predominant religion of ancient Persia.
