Khmer New Year

Hi friends, this week we enter the celebration of the Cambodian New Year, where it is customary to make the journey to your home land and spend quality time with your close family relatives. This is an celebration from the ancient times in Khmer culture when people would make the trek back to help harvest the family rice, and start the New Year with relatives. This a Joyous time of the year. With all the traveling involved in this holiday the roads are flooded with trucks, cars and motorbikes. With the increase of traffic there can be many auto accidents, added with the extra drinks with friends celebrating. All to say please pray for a safe and fun time for everyone traveling the roads and celebrating with family here in Cambodia..
