Khmer New Year or Cambodian New Year’s Eve (Bun Chaul Chnam Khmer), literally translated “Enter Year New” is known as the most popular Cambodian holiday during the year. The holidays last for three days beginning on New Year Day, which usually falls on April 13th or 14th. New Year in Cambodia represents the end of the harvesting season, when farmers enjoy the fruits of their labor before the rainy season begins. Days ahead of this, people clean up their homes, communities and decorate for celebration, as well as set up an altar to the New Year spirit, Tevada Chnam Thmey.
