Water Festival 2018

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

^^ Don't worry. By morning it will all have been swept down into the river. But, you knew that already.

is there a reason why the festival is at the end of the month this year?
Yes the lunar cycle, 23rd November is a full moon. It coincides with a Buddhist day but I forget the name. If I’m not mistaken it marks the end of the wet season.
Image
22nd :15 Kert, end of the moon grow : full moon, it is a holy day for Buddhism, 23rd is the 1st Roch= first day that the moon getting smaller.
Khmer Calendar is a bit complicate which have 1 kert to 14or 15 kert then continue to 1 roch to 14 or 15 roch for a month.
Also there are 3-4 days holy day a month. On the 8th day and on the 15th day.
It really confusing me sometime!
