Your Fiery Red Color is MINE

Filed under creepy boyfriend obsession

My Iranian (pronounced ih-RON-ee-an) boyfriend informs me that tonight is the Persian festival Chaharshanbe Suri! YES! My absolute favourite Persian holiday!!!

No, I didn’t know what it was, either, so Kamran sent me the Wikipedia link, and here’s the best part:

The tradition includes people going into the streets and alleys to make fires, and jump over them while singing the traditional song, Sorkhi-ye to az man; Zardi-ye man az to. The literal translation is, Your fiery red color is mine, and my sickly yellow paleness is yours.

This is a face that’s never seen yellow paleness, am I right?
