Buddhist New Year - Losar -
Tuesday February 5, 2019

Buddhism (Theravada) : The new year is called Losar, and is celebrated according to the highly complicated Bhutanese calendar.


Lunar New Year (Tsagaan Sar) -
Tuesday February 5, 2019

Buddhism (Theravada) : The festival of the lunar New Year, Tsagaan Sar, is celebrated in or around February depending on the Mongolian lunar calendar. It generally coincides with other lunar New Year celebrations, like the Chinese. Often, however, Mongolians deny any Chinese origin or influence. In the 1960s, the communist government tried to transform it into Cattle Breeders` Day and official celebration was stopped. On the day of Tsagaan Sar increased checks on employee presence would occur. Neverthless, like with other traditionsand religious activities, some families remain a surreptious practise, especially in countryside. When the party tries to reaffirm traditional values in the late eighties it again becomes a public holiday. Still the festival has its pre-revolutionary character of reaffirming kin ties. Tsagaan Sar, meaning White Month or Moon, is one the main two big public annual events, next to the Nadaam. It marks the end of Winter and the beginning of spring and the new year´s cycle. Reverted to Tibetan calendar in 2005. in Kalmykia-Khalm Tangch, Buryatia, Tyva http://mongoluls.net/tsagaansar.shtml
