Southeast Asia Celebrates the New Year
Countries throughout Southeast Asia are celebrating the New Year this weekend! Known as Songkran (สงกรานต์ & សង្រ្កាន្) in Thailand & Cambodia, Songkan (ສົງການ) in Laos, and Thingyan (သင်္ကြန်) in Burma, the several-day celebration was once determined by the lunar calendar, but now regularly begins on April 12 or 13.
The event’s festivities are rooted in Buddhism and vary from country to country. The most common ritual involves large crowds of people dousing one another with water. Other customs include lighting candles and incense at Buddhist shrines, making charitable contributions to the poor and cleansing icons of the Buddha.
