Decorating the Homes for Holidays

On Charshma Nissani, Which is the Yezidi New Year, Yezidis have a tradition
Bunches of red flowers, particularly wild red anemones, which abound in the neighborhood of Sinjar are picked. A little paste is made and the shells from colored eggs are taken as well and used to plaster these red flowers on doorways of the houses. It is done so the Peacock Angel (Tawuse Melek) could recognize his people.
The flowers are also brought by people to the tomb of their saint and fastened or stuck near its entrance. These are left until they fall.
