Celebrations and Festivals

 

 Festivals in Laos run in conjunction with the lunar calendar and thus may not always happen on the same monthly dates year by year

Pimai Festival

 

Pi Mai Festival- Lao New Year

       April 13-15 every year, the entire country comes to a grinding halt. April 13 is officially the Last day of the old year. The next day is empty, belonging to neither the old nor the New Year. This 15th is the official start of the Lao New Year, or Pi Mai Lao.  This is The Time to wash away the past and Wish for a good future. Loa people symbolize this by throwing water at each other, for mutual Purification and blessing.  This is just about every-one, everywhere, getting drenched all the time, so don’t expect to stay dry, and join in the splashing fun with the entire Lao population!

       Nowhere is Pi Mai more appreciated than in Luang Prabang. A colorful march, lead by the red-faced Phu Gneu Gna Gneu ancestors, takes on the man street to escort the The Prabang Buddha. The revered statue is paraded through the streets before being put to rest and worshipped at Vat May where it remains for the duration of the festival

 

 


Presentation of the week :

Luang Prabang

 

Luang Prabang, or Louangphrabang, literally: "Royal Buddha Image (in the Dispelling Fear mudra)", is a city located in north central Laos, at the confluence of the Nam Khan river and Mekong River about 425 km north of Vientiane. It is the capital of Luang Prabang Province. The population of the city is about 50,000.

The city was formerly the capital of a kingdom of the same name. Until the communist takeover in 1975, it was the royal capital and seat of government of the Kingdom of Laos.

It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The estimated population of the city is 754,000 (2009)
