Ajil is also a nutritious and healthy snack to take to school, work and long road trips in small containers or ziploc bags.
During the chahar shanbeh suri festival, while people of all ages jump over the fire they will be singing:
Zardie man az to
Sorkhie to az man
Translation: May my sickly yellowish hue be yours and your reddish shine be mine. Wishing for all the troubles, sadness, gloom and unhappiness to go away and to make room for better and brighter moments in life!
