Happy Shab-e Chelleh

According to Iranian Mithraism (which is different from the Roman Mithraism) Shab-e Chelleh, is celebration for the end of the darkness and beginning of the emergence of the sun (symbol of Mehr) because Mehr (Mithra) was born to the virgin Anahita who had become earlier pregnant due to swimming in the lake Hamoun, and with Mehr being born darkness will retreat and eventually with the victory of light of Mehr over growing darkness in Tirgan Celebration (celebrating the star out) happiness of people is celebrated with a catchment population and people are happy to pay the Messenger of light (Mehr) managed to beat away the darkness and cold, and once again gave people the opportunity to live.

Hope this Shab-e Chelleh is Messenger for end of darkness and beginning of brightness and beauty and freedom for Iran and Iranians.
