Being a happy go lucky people, Myanmars hold several festivals in a year. In the days of Myanmar kings, there was a major festival in every month of the year. Even though some of them have ceased to be celebrated, there must be dozens of them left, counting the various pagoda festivals and other regional ones which are held all over the country. Thus, our country is a veritable land of festivals besides being The Golden Land of Pagodas.
