MONGOLIA CELEBRATES LUNAR NEW YEAR
Annually Mongolians celebrate Tsagaan Sar or Mongolian Lunar New Year at the junction of winter and spring. The exact date depends on the lunar calendar. Usually, Mongolians celebrate it on a new moon day at the end of January or February for three days seeing off the winter end and welcoming a flourishing spring of the new year. It is a popular family holiday to visit parents, relatives, neighbors, and friends.
