The October Calendar features a photograph of a masked dancer performing the Ging- Tsholing Cham at the Thimphu Tshechu. The chams are sacred dances performed by monks, with religious themes and messages. In this dance, the Tsholing, wearing the red masks with fierce expressions, represent demons. They are accompanied by Ging dancers, who beat on drums to subdue the Tsholing and show them the path of the Dharma. This, and the other sacred dances performed at the Tshechu, have remained unchanged in costume and choreography for over 5 centuries. The Thimphu Tshechu and a number of other religious festivals, fall in October.
