Note
Original Form and the Correct Meaning:
Chahar Shanbe Suri = Wednesday Celebration
derived from:
Sur = Celebration, Party (Persian)

Later Variation and the Wrong Meaning:
Chahar Shanbe Suri = Red Wednesday
derived from:
Sor = Red (Kurdish)

It is:
Sur, not Sor
and
It is:
Chahar Shanbe Suri, not Chahar Shanbe Sori
