Happy Songkran to Thai friends and Happy New Year to friends in Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos. It is also the Khmer New Year. Also Burma’s traditional New Year. Many people know it as the Water Festival where friendly dunking and splashing is a ritual, especially in Thailand. It is also celebrated in parts of northeast India, parts of Vietnam and Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture, China.
I called a friend in Cambodia last night and he said it is a long holiday weekend. Happy Holidays.
