Mehregan, the Persian festival of autumn, took place on Monday, Sept. 22.

Behnam Rugs celebrates the Persian culture by observing Mehregan, the Persian festival of autumn. This festival is celebrated on the autumnal equinox, which took place Sept. 22 of this year. Mehregan is a celebration of friendship, affection and love, and is celebrated with music, dancing and gift-giving. It includes a special table, just like Nowruz, the summer solstice festival, which is observed on the first day of spring. Both Nowruz and Mehregan are celebrations of nature. For both festivals, families gather symbols of the revival of nature and the gifts of God on a cloth.

The Persian festival of autumn is dedicated to Mehr. In the Persian language, “Mehr” means kindness and love. Mehr was also the goddess and symbol of kindness and love in the Indo-Iranian culture. She is associated with the creation of the world and is the goddess of light, friendship, faith, love and kindness. Today, many people celebrate Mehregan on Oct. 8. The celebration of Mehregan has not always been popular among Iranians, but in recent decades, many have become more interested in celebrating ancient Persian values. Many people around the world celebrate this festival, and some celebrations are held in Orange County, California and Munich, Germany. Learn more about Mehregan, the Persian festival of autumn, at
