Lighting the New Year Tree on Sukhbaatar Square

lighting-the-new-year-tree-on-sukhbaatar-squareUlaanbaatar traditionally welcomes the start of the New Year’s festivities by lighting the tree on Sukhbaatar Square. This year, lighting the tree lighting ceremony is held publicly on Monday (19th of December) on the Mongolian capital’s central square.

A total of 20 workers have been working since the 15th of December decorating the 21 meter high ‘iron’ tree with eight kilometers of LED lightening.

There are two new year celebrations in Mongolia: the first celebration comes on the calendar New Year and is celebrated by Santa bringing gifts, family and work celebrations and parties culminating in raised glasses toasting in the New Year.
