In this picture taken on Tuesday, March 18, 2014, an Iranian man lights fireworks during a celebration, known as “Chaharshanbe Souri,” or Wednesday Feast, marking the eve of the last Wednesday of the solar Persian year, in Pardisan park, Tehran, Iran. The festival has been frowned upon by hard-liners since the 1979 Islamic revolution because they consider it a symbol of Zoroastrianism, one of Iran’s ancient religions of Iranians. They say it goes against Islamic traditions. (AP Photo/Vahid Salemi) less
