From history we know that people used to organize special events, festivities and parties dedicated to the nature or to animals etc.

The Oldest Holidays and Festivities of Uzbekistan

One of the oldest and traditional festivities of Uzbeks has been the harvest day. As Uzbekistan has mostly had a rural economy during hundreds of years for the locals the harvest day was the main event and the main day for the local people. The harvest meant to them money, food, financial freedom and some joy.

Another main Uzbek fest is associated with the marriages and the sports competitions organized during the weddings. Still in rural Uzbekistan (especially in the south) people keep these traditions and most of the weddings are accompanied with national games like Buzkashi, dog fights etc.
