KYEE MA NOE PWE
WHERE: Nationwide, Myanmar (Burma)
WHEN: Fullmoon day of Tazaungmone (Nov 14 2008)
DURATION: 1night only
TRADITIONS: Burmese people, especially young men, still celebrate this mischief-making, called “KYEE-MA-NOE-PWE” which can be directly translate to English as “A Festival Where The Crow Doesn't Wake Up”. Young men sneak into peoples?? compounds at night to take things like earthen pots and benches which they hide in the compounds of neighbors. The next morning people have to search neighbors?? compounds to retrieve their properties. No one gets angry because it is done in a spirit of fun.
