Burma Water (Thingyan) Festival is the Burmese New Year Festival and usually falls on mid-April, about April 13 or 16. It is a Buddhist festival celebrated throughout the country over a period of four to five days commencing in the new year. Formerly the dates of the Thingyan festival are calculated according to the traditional Burma lunisolar calendar and but now have fixed Roman calendar (13 to 16 April) equivalent – it often coincides with Easter. The dates of the festival are observed as the most important public holiday throughout Burma and are part of the summer holidays at the end of the school year. Water-throwing or dousing one another from any shape or form of vessel or device that delivers water is the distinguishing feature of this festival and may be done on the first four days of the festival. However, in most parts of Burma, it does not begin in earnest until the second day. Thingyan Festival is comparable to other new year festivities in Theravada Buddhist areas of Southeast Asia such as Lao New Year, Cambodian New Year and Songkrann Thailand.
