Pchum Ben Ceremony

Pchum Ben is a most important holiday and cultural event in Cambodia. Officially it is a celebration of one's ancestors, honoring them and offering sacrifices to free their spirits. In its showing respect for the dead, it is like All Souls Day in the West, and, indeed, the Vatican has given permission for the Catholic Church in Cambodia to celebrate All Souls Day during Pchum Ben, instead of on November 2nd, so that Cambodian Catholics will feel at one with their culture. Pchum Ben has another dimension, too. It is expected that everyone must return to his or her home village in the various provinces to honor the ancestors. This family dimension and the need to go home is similar to the cultural imperative most Americans feel at Thanksgiving.

Catholics in Phnom Penh celebrated the day with a liturgy in the morning followed by a ceremony at a stupa where cremation ashes for an honored few persons are kept on the church grounds.

20, 21, 22, this November. Cambodia will celebrated a big festival which is Water festival known as Bon om touk. Some Asean country like Singapore, Lao, vietnam, Thailand, etc also send thier boat racer to compete with cambodian boat racer. During these 3 days many many people come from provinces and many tourists will come to pp city to enjoy this festival. Almost every boulevard is stuck with traffic jam. :-S
