Canada/Kahnawake, A man is looking at Pow-Wow dancers!
A pow-wow is a social gathering held by many different Native communities. A modern pow-wow is a specific type of event for Native people to meet and dance, sing, socialize, and honor their cultures. There is generally a dancing competition, with many different types of traditional dances, music and regalia, often with significant prize money awarded. 
This is a time to renew thoughts of the old ways and to preserve a rich heritage. Originally a Pow-wow, or “celebration” as it was called in the old days, was held in the spring to welcome the new beginnings of life. Often different tribal nations would come together for the occasion.

Canada/Montreal, Chaharshanbeh-Suri!
Chaharshanbeh Suri is an Iranian festival celebrated on the eve of the last Wednesday before Nowruz (the Iranian New Year's day).
Before the start of the festival, people gather brushwood in an open, free exterior space. At sunset, after making one or more bonfires, they jump over the flames, singing sorxi-ye to az man, zardi-ye man az to, literally meaning "[let] your ruddiness [be] mine, my paleness yours", or a local equivalent of it. This is considered a purificatory practice.
