Woman's Day

In lao, ວັນແມ່ຍິງສາກົນ, this is a public holiday, all administration and most of businesses are close, included restaurants. If this day falls a Saturday or Sunday, Monday will be considered also as holiday.

A bit history

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8 every year.[3] It is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights.

After the Socialist Party of America organised a Women’s Day on February 28, 1909 in New York, the 1910 International Socialist Woman’s Conference suggested a Women’s Day be held annually. After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 became a national holiday there. The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations.

Today, International Women’s Day is a public holiday in some countries and largely ignored elsewhere.

Lao New Year or Pi Mai Lao

Lao New Year or Pi Mai Lao

This is the biggest celebration of the year throughout the country and is a fun event to take part in.

Lao New Year is celebrated for three days in mid-April. The festival is based on the importance of water in people’s daily lives, and you will certainly get wet during this time. During Pii Mai, people splash water on one another to cleanse them of misfortune and bring luck for the coming year.

In the Vat, Buddha images are cleansed with sacred water and many Lao people make special offerings at the temples during this time of the year. During Pii Mai Lao most businesses and government offices are closed.
