Peasants’ Day (Myanmar)

A national public holiday in Myanmar dedicated to the country’s farmers and rural communities. In Myanmar, most of the population lives in rural areas and depends on agriculture for their livelihoods. The day serves as a reminder of the important role that farmers and rural communities play in the country’s economy and cultural heritage. Peasants’ Day is celebrated with traditional agricultural activities and ceremonies, such as ploughing, planting and harvesting, and by speeches, concerts and other events honouring the contributions of the country’s rural communities.
