The Yezidi community celebrates today "Klocha Sare Sale— - a holiday of renewal, the onset of spring, new life, new year.
By tradition, today all Yezidi housewives bake a New Year's cake - a piece in which a bead or a coin is placed. On the same day, as a sign of remembrance of the deceased, Yezidis treat neighbors and relatives with freshly baked cakes - kadami.

In the morning of the next day, all family members gather around the pie (Kloch) to be present when the head of the family, after mentioning the God "dasturi nave Khude u Shihadi", will divide it. First, a knife is held in the middle of the pie, and this is called "Hata jot" (i.e., the furrow of the plow), then one side is divided into pieces, each of which is brought as a gift to angels and saints, and the other is cut according to the number of family members. After the discovery of the bead, it is announced which saint will patronize the family this year (if the bead got into the piece under the name of an angel) and which of the family members received a special blessing (if the bead is found in the piece under the name of a family member).

The tradition of cutting a piece originates from the following legend – one day holy sheikhs gathered in Lalesh (the religious center of the Yezidis, Iraq), they placed a bead in a Piece and the one who got it became the main sheikh.
It is believed that during this holiday, God sends the angel Malak Zayn to earth for a blessing, after which the earth will begin to dress up. This religious holiday is closely connected with the awakening of nature and fertility.
It should be noted that only the Yezidis of the former USSR celebrate the Sara Sale in mid-March, which is a feature of the Yezidis who come from the Sarhad region. At the same time, this tradition has many similarities with the holidays of the Yezidis of Turkey and Iraq, which take place at a completely different time.
