On 19 March 2024, the head of the department “Museum Street” of the Bolgar Museum-Reserve Sagirova G.Y. held an interactive event on “Nowruz Batyr” dedicated to the holiday Nowruz, within the framework of the project “Pushkin’s card” for the students of Polyanskaya secondary school and Bolgar secondary school № 1.
It is believed that this holiday is more than three thousand years old. It officially became international only in 2009 when UNESCO included it in the list of intangible cultural heritage of humanity.
Nowruz is the oldest agricultural holiday, and its origin is connected with the emergence of the agricultural calendar. This ancient holiday symbolizes in the East the end of winter, the renewal and awakening of nature.
Traditions of celebrating Nowruz came to us from antiquity. Before the holiday, it is necessary to pay off all debts, clean the house and around it, prepare special festive dishes. It is also customary to put a mirror, candles and dyed eggs on the table. These items have a symbolic meaning: a candle is a fire that protects a person from evil spirits, an egg and a mirror symbolize the end of the old year and the beginning of the new one.
A large and varied program was prepared for this holiday. Everyone took part in fun contests and games. During the event, various folk games were played, which were alternated by concert numbers. The participants listened to and sang songs in Tatar, Chuvash and Russian languages, took part in the contests for strength and agility. Winners in various nominations were identified among the participants. All of them received diplomas of the Bolgar Museum-Reserve and gifts.
At the end of the event, everyone drank fragrant tea from the samovar and enjoyed pancakes from the oven.
68 people attended the event.
