Cambodian New Year

Cambodian's celebrate new year by having mass water fights, in Siem Reap, Cambodia, on April 16, 2016. 2016 marks the year of the monkey, the holiday lasts for three days beginning on New Year's Day, which usually falls on April 13th or 14th, which is the end of the harvesting season, when farmers enjoy the fruits of their labor before the rainy season begins. Khmers living abroad may choose to celebrate during a weekend rather than just specifically April 13th through 16th. The Khmer New Year coincides with the traditional solar new year in several parts of India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Puthandu, Myanmar and Thailand. (Photo by George Nickels/NurPhoto via Getty Images)
