Christmas In Mongolia

Mongolia, a Buddhist country, is one of few that does not observe Christmas; it is not regarded as an official holiday. Therefore, it might seem strange that companies, stores, and schools are all still open during the season. However, Christians in Mongolia celebrate Christmas by going to dinner, attending churches, or spending time with their families, although it is not a recognized holiday. Even though “ул сap” is not a recognized national holiday, non-Christians will party to celebrate it because it’s an excuse to have fun! In other words, Mongolians have already embraced Christmas.

But you must note that their Christmas equivalent of celebration is New Year or “Цагаан сар” (Tsagaan Sar), usually done during the whole week before December 31. Mongolians celebrate the New Year and do the typical Christmas traditions such as decorating traditional ornaments in their houses, while handcrafted ornaments and bright textiles are put on Christmas trees or usually called “New Year Tree” in Mongolia. Delicious meals are also prepared while having toast and parties and distributing gifts. Unlike adults, the younger generation usually celebrates it for fun and receives presents.

Merry Christmas In Mongolian

Even though it is not a country with a sizeable Christian population, the Mongolian people have adopted and customized Christmas. So if you want to greet a Christian friend from Mongolia or stay in your Western roots, “Merry Christmas!” can be translated as “Зул сарын баярын мэнд!” (Zul saryn bayaryn mend!”. Another common greeting is “Зул сарын баярын мэнд, шинэ оны мэнд хүргэе!” (Zul saryn bayaryn mend, shine ony mend khürgeye!) which means “Happy New Year and Merry Christmas!”.
