I would like to wish everyone a Happy Naadam! Enjoy yourselves over the next few days in Mongolian ways. I will let you decide what that would be.

Here is a little information on Naadam if you want it.
wikipedia wrote:
Naadam (Mongolian: Наадам, Classical Mongolian: Naɣadum, games) is a traditional type of festival in Mongolia. The festival is also locally termed "eriin gurvan naadam" (эрийн гурван наадам) "the three games of men". The games are Mongolian wrestling, horse racing and archery and are held throughout the country during the midsummer holidays. Women have started participating in the archery and girls in the horse-racing games, but not in Mongolian wrestling.

It involves wearing these outfits.



But they do this, so I wouldn't say to much.

We need a reprint of Mongolian Goat Rodeo. I wanna play it.

How can I celebrate without it? Come on, everybody! Let's demonstrate!

After seeing the pictures, I'm not sure whether it is a good or a bad thing that there is no women's mongolian-style wrestling.

I thought women competed in the horseback archery? Or is that another festival altogether?

One way of celebrating would be to eat nothing but meat and dairy products for 3 days!

For the womens wrestling, they just wear the top backwards.

Actually, the top is designed to prevent women from participating.
