Cambodia celebrates Ancestors’ Day after COVID-19 situation eases

Buddhists in Cambodia on Wednesday began to celebrate the three-day traditional the Pchum Ben festival, or Ancestors’ Day, after the COVID-19 situation in the kingdom has been brought under control.

During the celebrations, Buddhism followers go to pagodas and make offerings to monks in order to dedicate to their relatives and loved ones who had passed away.

Buddhists believe that everything they offer to the monks will reach their dead ancestors or relatives and in return, the dead will bless them with good luck.
