‘It’s a challenging time of year. It makes us stronger people – facing the harshness of winter.’
‘Winter in Mongolia makes my country look even more vast. It seems endless. With the mountains and mountain steppe all covered with snow, it is like an infinite milk sea. The beauty of it makes you catch your breath.’
‘Every season is completely different in Mongolia. If you want to know what winter is like in Mongolia, then really, you have to come and experience it yourself. Our Mongolian winter really has its own taste – especially our Lunar New Year celebration.’
‘The weather is really unique. It can be so harsh and also so mild. No two days are ever the same. It’s a very real time of year – with our people and our livestock battling the changing weather conditions.’
‘During the winter time we can sledge with our children – after the fresh snow. It is wonderful in the mountains – with nothing else except snow. It is just WOW. And the challenge of the winter makes me admire my ancestors and my country makes me think about who I am and where I am from. How Mongolians have always faced the challenges of the winter. And of course, there is our new year celebration – Tsagaan Sar.’
‘One reason I like winter in Mongolia is because of Tsagaan Sar – our traditional New Year. It is an important time to be with family and this means I get to travel to my home in the countryside and meet with my relatives.
‘I like the snow in winter. Also, our winter holiday which is Lunar New Year – Tsagaan Sar – is very special for us. We meet with out relatives and celebrate. Although winter is a very cold season, Tsgaaan Sar celebrates the warm season – the coming of spring and the warmth of being together with our relatives and family.’
