Water Festival and New Year Celebrations
After our Holi festival celebrations, now it is the time for:
1) Songkran – The Buddhist Thai New Year, celebrates with the water festival.
2) Thingyan – The Burmese Water Festival which marks the New Year with water throwing or drenching each other with water.
3) Vaisakhi – also known as Baisakhi, it is a Spring harvest festival celebrated by Sikhs.
4) Pahela Baishakh – The Bangladeshi New Year.
And, APDA joyously celebrated these festivals, including the New Year Ceremony of receiving blessing from the elders for New Year.
Wishing everyone a Happy Buddhist New Year, Happy Baisakhi/Vaisakhi and Pahela Baishakh.
