On the 1st of March 2022, the senior scientific worker of the Department of Dede Gorgud of the Institute of Folklore ANAS Khalida Mammadova spoke about “Od Chershenbe”-“Fire Tuesday” in the program “Jan, Azerbaijan!”. The researcher spoke about the interesting moments of Fire Tuesday. It was said that on this Tuesday, as on other pre-Tuesdays the rituals associated with fire and the burning of bonfires are associated with the sacred nature of wood.
