In Laos, there are many traditional or religious festivals linked to the history of Buddha, but some are of particular importance to the inhabitants.
Pii mai or Songkran (Buddhist New Year): This is the most important holiday of the country which lasts almost a week around the 13th to 18th April of each year. It’s a Tradition to finish the current year and start a new one.
Bun Bang Fai: the “Rocket Party” which is celebrated at the full moon of May to make a call to rain after the dry season.
Among the celebrations in Laos, only one is a commemoration, Vanh Saas (the national holiday) commemorates the 1975 revolution. The anniversary date of the Pathet Lao (National-Communist Party) came to power on 2 December 1975.
