The calendar in Laos

 

Laos is aimed, as we are, according to the "Gregorian Calendar" which is a solar calendar.
The Lao New Year is, however, as calculated in Thailand, according to the lunar calendar.
The lunar calendar is the Buddhist era calendar and begins in 2456.
If a holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday,
it will be moved to the previous or following working day.
