Myanmar is a predominantly Buddhist country and like many other Buddhist countries, holidays are celebrated according to the lunar calendar. The lunar year is twelve months long and starts and ends in mid-April.
The beginning of the New Year is marked with celebrations that last three to five days and it is the largest public celebration during the lunar year. The festival is called Thingyan and people welcome the New Year by playing with water in the streets. The New Year is a time of renewal and throwing water at each other serves the purpose of washing away and purifying the old and welcoming the new.
The fourth month in the lunar calendar, war so (July), marks the beginning of the Buddhist lent, a time of religious contemplation and sobriety. Thadingyut is also referred to as the festival of lights. People put candles outside their houses and release balloons. Everybody goes out to festival grounds where they celebrate together, enjoying food and entertainment. At the same time, people pay respect to their elders and visit monks.
