Halloween party ideas 2015

Most of the festivals celebrated by the Hmar tribe highlights their agricultural practices. The most common and popular are the Sikpui Ruoi and Butukhuonglawm.

Sikpui Ruoi is a post-harvest festival. It is celebrated when the community had a good harvest. The Hmar Inpui (apex body of the Hmar tribe) has accepted December 5 as the offical date to celebrate Sikpui Ruoi.

Butukhuonglawm is the pre-harvest or planting season festival. It used to be celebrated in the fields itself when one farmer will lead the rest by beating a drum. The others while doing their work would then sing the Butukhuonglawm song.
