How do you traditionally celebrate Tbilisoba?

Friday, October 7
“I take a camera and go into the streets. I like shooting scenes of celebration in old Tbilisi.”
Sophio, Journalist, 23

“I don't celebrate it at all because I can’t see any reason for it.”
Lali, MA Student, 21

“If I want to walk in the streets and eat some churchxela, I don’t need Tbilisoba or any other reason for that.”
Nodar, Painter, 32

“To tell the truth I never celebrate, they are just ordinary days for me. I am at home, or with my friends, however I do not participate in the activities dedicated to the day, I don’t like being with a lot of people in a noisy environment.”
Lia, Housewife, 34

“Well, I am going to participate this year. I did not have an opportunity to do this in past years due to several reasons. I am interested in the arrangements planned for the day. At the same time, the French president is coming and I think Tbilisoba this year will be better organized and special.”
Zura, Student, 19

“If I am not too busy, I attend those concerts and activities I am interested in. This year I will also attend several ones.”
Dato, Manager, 31
