Hmong festival in December

Luang Prabang

The young girls got dressed in their new clothes, all fancy with jewelry and purses hung with silver coins, and they would go to an open space in the village to play toss ball with the boys in a game called pov pob, to exchange bits of jewelry or their pretty purses if they should drop the ball, and to sing songs. And the men would either go to the buffalo-bull fights (where bulls were trained to fight each other) or to play toss ball with the single girls, looking for another wife.
