WHAT IS "HIDRELLEZ"?
It is said that whatever you wish for on that night, will come true!
"Hidrellez", is one of the seasonal festivals of all Turkish world which is celebrated as the first day of the "early summer". It is also "day
of Hizir", the day on which prophets Hizir and Ilyas met with each other on earth. The words Hizir and Ã„Â°lyas have since fused together
pronounced as Hidrellez. Hidrellez Day falls on May 5-6. There are various theories about the origin of Hizir and Hidrellez. Various
ceremonies and rituals have been performed for various gods with the arrival of spring or summer in Mesopotamia, Anatolia, Iran,
Greece and in fact all eastern Mediterranean countries since ancient times.Hizir is the symbol of spring, and the new life which emerges with it.
