Yes, the whole country is celebrating the Khmer New Year. Today is the second day of the three-day celebration and is called the vanabot. This is the day when Cambodian families go to wats (templse) for a special ceremony for their ancestors. This is also the day when families give or donate something to their less fortunate relatives and neighbours. It is amazing to note that families, no matter how poor or how limited their resources are, still make sure toshare something to the needy, especially on this day.
This is the third time we are welcoming the new year. The first, being on Jan 1 (international new year’s day), and followed by the Chinese new year.
