Khmer New Year Blessing
The Khmer New Year is one of the most important holidays in Cambodia. It is celebrated annually in April. Cambodians who live in Phnom Penh go to their traditional home area in the provinces to be with family. The holiday is celebrated with feasts, festivals and visits to the local wat. To mark the beginning of the holiday, at DDP in Phnom Penh we invited monks to bless the students and staff.
