Yalda Night 2012 Celebration

The Iranian Canadian Association celebrated the longest night of the year, traditionally named the Yalda Night, on December 19 with a gathering at the Cameron Centre.

The celebration started with the singing of the Iranian and Canadian National Anthems. The MC then invited the president of the society, Mr. Reza Doustmohammadi, to give a speech about the cultural significance of the Yalda Night celebration.  Ms. Sue McIntyre, the Seniors' Programme Coordinator at Cameron was then invited to say a few words.

The ceremony was conducted in both English and Persian.  Dinner was served at 7 pm.  After dinner, coffee, tea, pastries and fruits were served and the night continued with live music, DJ music and dances until it ended at 8:30 pm.

The Iranian Canadian Association would like to thank all the volunteers for making the Yalda Night a big success.
