Cambodian New Year / Khmer New Year (Start) History
The Cambodian New Year marks the traditional end of the harvest season. Families celebrate as they reap the fruits of their labor. The festivities last three days starting on new year's day. People leave their homes and celebrate together out in the streets. According to legend, a new angel arrives on new year's day. The people have rituals to welcome the angel. There's an angel for each day of the week, depending on when the first day of the year falls. All of the new year angels wear flowers behind their ears and necklaces, carry weapons and ride an animal.
