— The Mongolian School of the National Capital Area hosted a concert of music, song, dance and fashion at the Wilson School on Saturday afternoon, Nov. 17. The Mongolian School, a Saturday school that teaches Mongolian language, history, culture and music, has been at the Wilson School since 2007. Celebration was in the air recently as the Mongolian parliament agreed upon the official birthday of Chinggis Khan. The legislators, using the Lunisolar Calendar, set the day as the first day of the first month of winter. Chinggis Khan’s 850th birthday will be celebrated in 2013.
