THE KING’S BIRTHDAY

artwatereness-king

Today three national festivity days start honouring King Sihanouk’s birthday. For us is a bit weird to celebrate a king’s birthday when he is already part of history, but, when talking about celebrations, it’s better not wondering the reason why too much and regarding celebrating time issues, Cambodia is one of the top countries.

Sihanouk was a beloved king; you can actually find his portrait together with his wife’s and his son’s, the current king Sihamounik, hanging from the walls of all kind of houses and places across the country.
The schools are on holidays and, during these three days, ceremonies are held all over the country to remember the king with love and to pray for his soul.
