Suiunchu is the good news of the birth of a baby, by the way, the one who tells this news receives gifts, most often gifts are money. Korunduk is when the parents of the baby for the first time show the child to their relatives and friends and also receive money for this (any amount). Beshik toi is an official celebration of the birth of a child, when many guests are invited, many delicious traditional dishes are prepared and rituals such as burning juniper are performed. Tushoo kesuu is a celebration in honor of the first independent steps of a child, usually held when the child is one year old. Many guests with children are invited.

The engagement rituals are a bit modernized now. For example, now it is important for the Kyrgyz to hold a gorgeous wedding with a large number of guests in one of the famous restaurants in the country. And this, yes, is a big financial loss. Nevertheless, the traditional way of getting married is different, because it used to be "ala kachuu", this is stealing the bride. Any man could steal a girl as a bride. And unfortunately, according to Kyrgyz traditions, the bride had no right to leave the groom's house, even if they did not know each other. Fortunately, today "ala kachuu" is an illegal method that is punishable by law. However, the Kyrgyz have retained such a ceremony as "kyz uzatuu", that is, seeing off the bride, when relatives and friends say goodbye to the bride. Then the "nike kyiuu" ritual is when, in accordance with Muslim religious laws, marriage is legalized. Then the wedding comes.
