Haji FiRuz History:

Hadji Firouz was a man in red clothes who went from street to street singing and beating a tambourine on New Year’s eve (which is also the eve of spring). He was usually accompanied by one or two other persons. It is said that he and his companions were symbols of an old custom in Azarbaijan, called “Chisdon Chikhdim,” according to which Haji Firouz sang from the streets to inform people that spring had come and that winter has gone. In return, people gave him gifts or money for the good news that he brought.

Haji Firuz, disguise himself with makeup and wear brightly colored outfits of satin. Haji Firuz singing and dancing, parades as a carnival through the streets with tambourines, kettle drums, and trumpets to spread good cheer and the news of the coming new year.
