The traditional custom of Panjah bedar is similar to Sizdah bedar, of course it isn’t as known as Sizdah bedar. But it's set yet among Qazvin's people. In this day that is 50th day of new year they go out in order to thanksgiving God because of blessings. They go to city's Mosalla and pray on 19th day of Ordibehesht, then go to the nature and spend some hours by together. So Panjah bedar is a religious-ritual custom. The most of Qazvin people make a simple food that is called Doimaj and it's gredients are dried bread, vegetables, walnut, fried onion and cucumber. In addition, Qazvin people eat watermelon, nuts and fruits in this day and most of them eat Ash reshteh in the afternoon.
