With the explosion in Baghdad and in Miami, I thought that I would check if there were any other today and found this:
Iranians celebrate fire festival
Iranians danced in the street, threw firecrackers and jumped over bonfires Tuesday night as authorities openly tolerated an ancient fire festival for
the first time in 25 years.
Halted each year since the 1979 Islamic revolution because hardliners considered it un-Islamic, the Chaharshanbeh Suri, or Red Wednesday, festival was
officially recognized in Tehran where the city council set aside dozens of parks for people to enjoy the boisterous celebrations.
Edit: I am not saying that it is related or anything, but it is interesting.
