HICA and iranian in north London celebrated the Ancient festival of Chahar-Shanbe-Soory

Harrow Iranian Community Association (HICA) is proud to inform you that with the support of Iran School’s Staff and parents of the school’s students, manged to celebrate “Jashne-e Chahar Shanbe-Soory” in Harrow Leisure Centre. Iranians in north London participated in this ancient festival and had a very happy and spirit-lifting night, where they were served with Iranian snacks, sandwiches and traditional Ashe-Reshteh. In this night, we have carried out the ancient ceremony of jumping over fire, which is especially fun for younger people. There was also live Persian music that created a happy atmosphere for dancing till midnight.

It is worthy to mention that all money raised in this event is dedicated to be spent on the cost of running Farsi classes in Iran School and those who participated in the festival not only had a happy and unforgettable night but also indirectly supported Iran school in providing Parsi language classes for your children and promoting rich Iranian culture.

HICA wishes you well and is hopeful to see you again in next Chahar-Shanbe-Soory in March 2017.
