Yalday (Cheleh), which is the celebration of the winter solstice, has a unique place in Iranian-Persian culture. In the past several years, Victoria Iranian-Persian Cultural Society has always worked hard to host a large event to celebrate this beautiful tradition. This year, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated restrictions, we could not celebrate Yalda with an event. Hence, our Events Committee, with the help of many of our members, took a different direction and produced an online program. This online program was broadcasted on YouTube on December 20th and was well-received by many of our members. If you did not have a chance to watch this program, you can do so by clicking on the link below.
We are a non-profit, multicultural, non-partisan, non-religious, and non-sectarian society that does not directly or indirectly engage in any discrimination based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, language, or cultural background.
