End of Winter Celebration is one of the Iranian customs in which the victory of Amesha Spenta over the evil of demon, extravagance and humiliation will be celebrated.

Amesha Spenta are a class of seven divine entities emanating from Ahura Mazda, the highest divinity of the Zoroastrian religion.

Nature has always been inspiring to all religions and schools of thought and has a high importance in various creeds all over the world.

The celebration of the end of winter has also been one of the most important customs of Iran.

Zamharir means extreme coldness and is a symbol of darkness and hell which is the result of attack of demons to earth.

In the Zoroastrian calendar, end of the winter is the time of the victory of gods over the demons and the celebration of warmth and daylight.

Zoroastrians, believing that they are also the hosts of the spirits of the dead, at dawn they light fire on the roof of the house. They do so to say goodbye to the spirits as they leave earth towards the sky.
