Karen New Year, the largest celebration on the Karen calendar, was disrupted this year when SPDC Army soldiers once again violated the fragile ceasefire existing between the SPDC Army and the KNU.  Karen New Year was observed on January 10 this year and was commemorated throughout all of the Karen areas.  For only the second time in the village's existence, large-scale celebrations were held in Kah Law Ghaw village of Kawkareik township, Dooplaya District with villagers coming from many nearby villages to join in the celebrations.
