Happy Mongolian Lunar New Year of the Victorious Water Snake!

Tsagaan Sar is the Mongolian lunar new year celebration. It is one of the most important events for all Mongols across the country. It lasts fifteen days during which families gather to renew and solidify ties, particularly between young and old, and to repay debts and resolve disagreements. People dress in traditional clothes, tell stories that transmit traditional knowledge, consume traditional dishes, play games, and practise customs that reinforce Mongolian identity, solidarity and continuity. Transmission occurs primarily within families.
