On December 15, Ayaz Baba and Garpamyk (Turkmen Father Frost and Snegurochka) opened New Year trees in the main squares of the capital and regions. The largest Christmas tree, according to the state information agency TDH , is installed in Ashgabat on the square in front of the Älem cultural and entertainment center.
The structure is 38.5 meters high and 16 meters in diameter. “In recent years, the central New Year tree of Ashgabat ranked first in the rating as the highest among the New Year trees in the capital cities of the CIS countries,” writes TDH.
Note that the installed tree is not a tree, but a cone-shaped metal frame covered with a green material.
At the Christmas tree "on behalf of young Turkmen citizens Ayaz Baba and Garpamyk sent congratulations to the President and the people on the coming New Year."
After lighting the lights on the tree, the children participating in the event were presented with gifts on behalf of the head of state.
In the regions, the trees are installed in front of the "White Yurts" - the same concert halls built in all regions of the country.
President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov personally approved the decoration and decorations around the trees two weeks ago .
