When is Hmong New Year celebrated?
From Sheng Lee, MMSD teacher: "There isn't a specific date for the Hmong New Year, as traditionally, each village celebrates at the end of their harvest season. This season usually falls anywhere from November through the first few weeks of January. After the religious component, the cultural piece happens anywhere between 7-9 days. In the United States, some cities celebrate as early as mid September lasting 2 days to 7 days. Here in Madison, we celebrate it during Thanksgiving break, Friday and Saturday."
