Hmong New Year celebrations in Luang Prabang (26 December 2019 – 5 January 2020)

Hmong New year is “the first of the 5 new year days” in Laos (before the Lao Theung, Christian, Chinese and finally Lao new year).

This celebration will take place before the end of the twelfth lunar calendar month, the New Year celebration of the end of harvest-thus, the beginning of a new year-a giving of thanks so that a new life may begin and gathering of smaller communities, and the ideal time to find a future husband and wife

The celebration will start in the morning of the first New Year day and may last three or more days. This occasion will include ball tossing, song contests and dances, sporting activities such as top playing, kicking, and bull fighting. Hmong girls are wearing their most elaborately embroidered new outfits.
