The actual date for the Cambodian New Year is the 13th of April. By ancient tradition, the celebration would last for three days. The first day is the beginning of the celebration, the second is the Middle Day (Blind Date) and the third one is the Day when the name of the New Year i.e. year of the Goat effectively starts.
