Quoting elenagabriela

I have a question about it - what means, I think that is a celebration but..I din`t heared about it{#emotions_dlg.confused}

 

 Just looked up kandil in the dictionary and I got this:

 

kandil gecesi one of five Islamic holy nights when the minarets are illuminated: Mevlit, Regaip, Miraç, Berat, Kadir.

If you google it you might get more information

 

And hayırlı means like good wishes like ´hayırlı olsun´ - ´may it be good/congratulations´
