Due to the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot, holidays like the King’s Birthday play an important role in reminding Cambodian citizens about the importance of having a government with limited powers. This holiday celebrates the birth and coronation of Cambodia’s current monarch, King Norodom Sihamoni. The Birthday of King Norodom Sihamoni is celebrated on May 13 each year. It is followed by two additional celebration days. The King’s Birthday is one of 25 public holidays that are celebrated in Cambodia each year.
