Tuva Celebrating Shagaa, New Year by Lunar Calendar

Monday was an official day off in Tuva. Since 1991 Shagaa (movable according to the Lunar Calendar) and the Day of the Republic (August, 15) Photo presented by Uraanhay weekly have been celebrated officially after decades of oblivion. January, 30 this time was fixed by the Resolution of the Great Khural of Tuva as the festive day based on the recommendations of the Tuva's Kamby-Lama. Night preachings took place in all the lamaseries of the republic and in the Drama theatre as well. People tried to fight the sleep as it is a general belief that one of the Deities during the night on the Shagaa's eve counts the souls. If you are asleep you won't be counted and will be devoide of a large portion of happiness.
