Celebrating the New Year in April

By Melissa Sim

ALTHOUGH it is already four months into the new year, grassroots groups and some associations may still be holding various 'New Year' celebrations.

The reason: April is the month when communities from India, Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Bangladesh hold their traditional New Year celebrations.

There have been at least three Thai Water Festival celebrations over the last few weeks and even a combined 'Rainbow New Year Celebration' in Woodlands to encompass all the festivities in the month.
