On the 13th or 14th of April
each year, Cambodian people celebrate the Khmer New Year for three days. Khmer
New Year is the biggest holiday of the year and is usually spent with family
During the last Khmer New Year, I visited my
grandparents in my hometown in Kampot province. It was a three-hour drive from
the capital city Phnom Penh. My family and I went to a pagoda on the first day
of the New Year to pray for happiness, health, and prosperity for our family.
We also played some traditional games at the pagoda with the villagers and
danced to classical Khmer songs. I enjoyed wearing my traditional clothes and
ate great home-cooked Cambodian food during the holiday. After the holiday, we
returned home exhausted, but very happy to celebrate the holiday with
the people we love.
New Year is my most favorite holiday, and I am looking forward to the next one
in the upcoming year.
