For those not familiar with the rich history of Cambodia's greatest traditional festival and national holiday, here's a bit of information about Cambodian New Year which is celebrated at the end of the harvesting season, when farmers enjoy the fruits of their labor which falls on April 13th or 14th. It can be a 3 day or week long celebration and everyone wishes each other and their families peace, happiness and success. I remembering growing up and celebrating Cambodian New Year in San Diego, where everyone in the Cambodian community would get together at local parks and enjoy drinks, food, games and bbq. The celebration was open to everyone of any background and to this day and in certain areas in the United States it is still celebrated. Wishing all of my Khmer peeps and those that celebrate this New Year, a year filled with bountiful harvest, prosperity, good health and great happiness.
