Vera Tsutaeva, About Zul and Tsagan Sar
Vera says that people should make birthday candles for their boys on Zul. Vera makes the candles from dough and sticks grass stems into them according to the age of her boys plus 1 or 2 additional grass stems. The candles could also be made from potatoes. Traditionally, men celebrated their birthdays 7 days after Zul. During Tsagan Sar Vera makes tea early in the morning and offers it to the gods.
