The Turkmen custom goňşy okara has an ancient origin. According to this custom, the neighbors were supposed to maintain good relations and treat each other with bread and salt. This custom became the foundation for a new public holiday, that was established by the government of Turkmenistan in order to remind people of their ancient customs and values.
