Holiday of Spring – Suslik Day!

Kalmykian folk festival Tsagan Sar. Spring Celebration 9th of February – the 4th of March.

Celebration day in 2016: February, 9.

Suslik Day. People celebrate Suslik Day in Kalmykia, as some call this national Mongolian festival introduced by Genghis Khan eight centuries ago. Tsagaan Sar (a White Month) means the beginning of Spring.

People get ready to this Kalmykian Holiday very properly like many centuries ago. They got new clothes, brought the old ones in order. They cleaned and decorated carriages too. People stored up food, baked boortsog flat cakes which were very important.

Boortsogs “khuts” made in the shape of a sheep symbolized a wish of a bigger offspring for this type of cattle and, in a sense, reflected an ancient animal sacrifice ritual, e.g. substitutted a real victim by its image.
