Over many years, Assyrians have been celebrating different traditions of their new country due to the Assyrian Diaspora. But, there are original Assyrian traditions, hence culture. Assyrians hold feasts (Syriac: hareh) for different patron saints, the Nineveh Rogation (Syriac: Bo’utho d-Ninwoye/Ba’uta d-Ninwaye) which is a three day fast with absolutely no food, and no water, nothing. Finally the most popular, the Assyrian New Year (Syriac: Ha b-Nison/Kha b-Nisan). Some of these traditions have been practiced by the Assyrians for well over 1,500 years, and there are many more.
