Turkmenistan Kurban Bayram


Turkmen have an interesting tradition for Kurban Bayram (the feast of the sacrifice) where they will swing on giant swings. It is said that if you swing a certain number of times on the swing during the 3 days of Kurban Bayram an angel will come and take away your sins.
