Thingyan, which is also known as the water festival, is one of the biggest festivals in Myanmar. It is celebrated for 4 or 5 days nationwide and is also the Myanmar New Year Festival. During this festival, people play with water as they splash water to each other, believing that the sins and guilt that they had made for the whole year will be washed away with the water. After this enjoyable festival period, on the first day of the new year, people do good deeds such as going to pagodas, monasteries, making donations to the monks and paying respect to the elders, parents, teachers, etc.
