Mahdi Ceremony: Messiah will return

Yesterday was holiday in Iran because of a religious ceremony: Mahdi's Birthday. Here is Khayyam Boulevard. What do you call those hanged things in the sky in English? It's just for decoration.

Muslims believe Mahdi will rid the world of error, injustice and tyranny alongside Jesus. They also believe that Jesus is alive in Heaven and will return to Earth to defeat the Antichrist. Yesterday was Mahdi's birthday. We believe he is alive and will return.
