One of the main principles, which are considered very important, is to live by three rules: good thoughts, good speech and good deeds. Zoroastrians have a celebration named Sade; it is one of the most ancient celebrations of Iran. According to Iranian calendar it is held at the hundredth day of the winter, according to historical texts it is the day of creation of fire, people believed that in this day the dark and cold of the winter was coming to an end and with collecting a great amount of firewood and the use of the sun they made a fire which destroyed the rest of the cold and warmed the heart of the earth. This tradition is a national celebration and each year a lot of non-Zoroastrians celebrate it to honor their ancestors. This celebration is held in Zoroastrian Atashkadeh(fire-temple) in Kerman every year.
