During Yalda Night:
On this night, the oldest member of the family says prayers. Thanking God for previous year’s blessings and prays for prosperity in the coming year. Then the melon is cut and share between everyone. The cutting symbolize the removal of sickness and pain from the family. People had to gather in the safety of groups of friends and relatives. Share the last remaining fruits from the summer. Also find ways to pass the long night together in good company.
