CAMBODIA OVERVIEW

The Lares (Ong Tao) and 23rd of last month: According to the Legend, there�re 3 Lares in the kitchen of each family. They�re a happy family too (2 husbands and 1 wife), and they�re in kitchen to see our life. At the end of the year, they go to the heaven to make a report to Heaven! So, the 23th December every year of lunar calendar is the day when the Lares go into the sky. Every family will prepare a carp, some food and few votive papers (such as clothing, caps and shoes by paper that will be burned after worship) to make offerings to the Lares! Then, we�ll have to release that carp into a river near our house because it�s the vehicle of the Lares to go to the heaven. The Kitchen God will need a week for his mission to Heaven.

After that day, we continue to decorate our house by ornamental plants, such as apricot blossom tree, peach blossom and kumquat or mandarin tree! However, some families prefer to add a pair of wood panels (on which parallel sentences are inscribed) at two sides of their ancestral altar or on the lunar New Year pole (set up in the count yard of every house).

Giao Thua: As midnight approaches, all eyes maintain a close look on clocks and watches. The Giao Thua ritual occurs at that most sacred moment in time. At midnight on the last day of the year, every Vietnamese family whispers similar fervent prayers. Bells ring and drums beat in temples. The old year gives over its mandate to the New Year. The words Giao Thua (Giao means to give and Thua means to receive) mean a passing on or a receiving and handing down of life, and the recognition of that gift by the present generation. It marks the magical transition time from one year to another.
Everyone (parents, children) gather in living room to clink glasses congratulating a good new year and to give each other a New Year �s Day gift! That�s a traditional custom: adult make kids a new year�s gift, parents make it for their children, grandparents for their descendant and conversely to wish a new year filled by health, happiness, riches and success! Someone go to the pagodas to burn incenses for the Great Buddha and to pick something such as luck of beginning of the year. Then, they come back home to be the first New Year�s caller!

First Morning or Head Day is reserved for the nuclear family, that is, the husband's household. Immediate family members get together and celebrate with the husband's parents. A younger brother, if the parents are not alive, will visit his older sibling. Faraway sons and daughters journey to be with their parents on this day. Children anticipate a ritual called Mung Tuoi, or the well wishing on the achievement of one more year to one's life. With both arms folded in front of their chest in respect, they thank their grandparents for their birth and upbringing.
Reciprocally, the grandparents will impart words of advice or wisdom to their grandchildren, encouraging them to study seriously, to live in harmony with others. The promises made by the children are similar to New Year's resolutions made during the western New Year. Adults will make silent promises to themselves to improve their lives, habits and relationships in the coming year. The children accept small gifts, usually crisp bills. Ideally, part of the gifts will be saved for future "investment," and part spent for Tet amusements. The words on the little red envelope in which the bill may be tucked read: Respectful wishes for the New Year. When there was a king ruling Vietnam, the mandarins of the royal court formally wished the King and Queen, "Happiness as vast as the southern sea; longevity as lasting as the southern mountains." Each trade and professional guild in Vietnam has a founder or guardian spirit and on this or one of the next several days, the craft workers will make offerings to their guild ancestor.
In Vietnam, there�re many festivals in the pagodas and in the temples during the first month of New Year everywhere! Everyone go to the pagodas to burn incenses praying for their parents, for their family, for their children, for their lover and for themselves!
