Yalda is the last night of autumn, the beginning of winter & the longest night of the year. Yalda is a special night in Iran.On Yalda night, members of the family stay together, narrate old stories told by ancestors, play traditional games and eat dried and fresh fruits symbolizing various things. The great conjunction of the Moon & Jupiter is a nice gift in Yalda night.
