Bun Pii Mai
         
In the fifth lunar month, Songkran Ceremony (ກຸດສງການ--kudsongkaan or Lao New Year's Festival) should be held. In this ceremony, people splash water on each other, have a Songkran parade, clean, wash, and pay homage to the Buddha images, pour lustral water on Buddhist monks, respected persons, and bring sand to build sand stupas on the temple grounds.
