Moving Chahrshanbeh Souri to weekend (Shanbeh Souri?)
1 (a madar)
to open up a discussion: I think the Iranian Society in San Diego had
their Charshanbeh Soori on Saturday and called it Shanbeh Soori. I really
liked the idea and thought it would have been great if we at Northern
California had something like this for next year. Do any of you know why
we have Charshanbeh Soori on last Tuesday night of the year and still call
it Charshanbeh. What is wrong with having it on last Saturday of the month
and call it Shanbeh Soori? I just think it is so hard for school age kids
to go to Charshnbeh Soori in the middle of the week and go back to school
the next day. After all we do observe Sizdeh bedar, why not Charshanbeh

Sorry I am against " Moving Chahrshanbeh Souri to weekend".
There is nothing wrong for the kids to miss 1/2 day or even whole day of school to
celebrate their holiday. What is next move Norouz to 3:00 pm third Saturday of the
March? Fortunately schools are very accommodating in these matters.

I agree with madar #2.

And I agree with both of you! (#2 and #3)

How could we possibly hold the "The Eve of Red Wednesday" on a Friday or
Saturday night? Shanbeh Souri? Yekshanbeh Souri? Kind of silly.

I have to say that I really enjoy this holiday. We live near LAX and head for
the beach every year - bringing a big pot of ashe-reshteh, chai and other
goodies, our beach chairs, wood and loads of friends. The kids enjoy the
evening a lot even though we end up smelling like smoke for days and enough
sand comes home to fill a sandbox.
