Pchum Ben

Pchum Ben is one of the biggest Cambodia’s ceremonies it happens during  September. It a ceremony that makes most of Cambodian stop from doing work and comes with their family and goes to the pagoda. They believe that all the relative that died will go to hell or heaven but for the relative that goes to hell, they don’t have enough food to serve themselves. People believe going to the pagoda and pray to the relative will help the relative that goes to hell from hunger. Also it a way that will help the monks from starving because it a rainy season and the monks can’t go and gather the food for themselves. I know all this information be doing the research in Khmer class.
