Khmer New Year in Kok Snoul Village

20 May 2012

Every year at my village named Kok Snuol  celebrates Khmer New year. This ceremony is 3 days long, starting from 13rd to 15th. During the ceremony there are lots of tradition games.

General people attended playing happily and then donated food for monks and cleaned Buddha sculptures in pagoda. For me, I was interested and excited so much about Khmer New Year and joined them to play several games I like such as sprayed powder, pumped water into bottle, hit baked pots for getting prizes if someone did the best.

After finished celebrate at day they continued started dancing and played different games for excitement more and more at night until pass midnight.

At the end of Happy Khmer New Year I blessed for Cambodian people always get good health and happiness through whole year.

We hope you will enjoy our video.

    What a wonderful post! I enjoyed seeing the extended families of the students (the parents, and grandparents, and brothers & sisters). I was interested to learn about the tradition of washing the elders — this was new to me.  Thank you!
