    Well... according to the great history of Persian Empire, we have lots of festivals here. But people here, are just so obsessed by the other countries' cultures and prefer to stay at their homes at those times. But still there are like less than 10 cultural festivals that people take it serious, though only one of them is in summer. It's called “Tirgan”.

    It's from an ancient legend in the history of Persia. As Wikipedia says:


    Tirgan is an ancient Iranian tradition which is still celebrated in various regions of Iran, including Mazenderan, Khorasan, and Arak.[1][2][3] It is widely attested by historians such as Gardezi, Biruni, and Masudi, as well as European travelers during the Safavid era.

    Statue of Arash the Archer at the Sa'dabad Complex, Tehran.
    The celebration is dedicated to Tishtrya, an archangel who appeared in the sky to generate thunder and lightning for much needed rain.

    Legend says that Arash the Archer was a man chosen to settle a land dispute between the leaders of the lands Iran and Turan. Arash was to loose his arrow, on the 13th day of Tir, and where the arrow landed, would lie the border between the two kingdoms. Turan had suffered from the lack of rain, and Iran rejoiced at the settlement of the borders, then rain poured onto the two countries and there was peace between them.

    It is stated in Biruni's chronology that "by the order of God, the wind bore the arrow away from the mountains of Ruyan and brought the utmost frontier of Khorasanbetween Fergana and Tapuria.[4] Gardizi has given a similar description, although he notes that ‘the arrow of Arash fell in the area between Fargana and Bactria.’

    It's on 13th day of Tir ( Equal with July 4), like another month after now.

    Besides halloween, Midsummer is my fave.
    Usually there has been a Midsummer Bonfire, that people burn besides lakes/or in lakes. But its been so dry lately, that Im not sure if you can burn them this year. There has been so many fires around the country.
    [​IMG]

    In folk magic, midsummer was a very potent night and the time for many small rituals.
    People would seek 7 different flowers, put them under your pillow and it is said that you would dream of your future husband. Still going on today too. I have never tried.
    Another one, maidens would use special charms and bend over a well, naked, in order to see their future husband’s reflection.

    People go to theyre cabins for this day, and there are festivals. We dont really have a dance or a music theme for it, but it is celebrated trought the whole country.

    ''I guess it is midsummer again..''

    To this day I don't know what exactly people are celebrating, seems like an excuse to get drunk. And as you know I dislike going outside, heat, socializing, people and don't really care for drinking either, so it's not for me.
