Mongolia's general public has recently been confused as to whether Mongolia should celebrate the new year public holiday of Tsagaan Sar (White Moon or White Month) on February 7 or 8, 2008.

The government-sanctioned religious authorities of the Gandan Tegchenling Monastery assert that Tsagaan Sar should occur on February 8, while another astrologer, D. Dashtseren, predicts February 7. The Bank of Mongolia has listed February 8 as the official Tsagan Sar public holiday.
