Laoconnection.com: A Lao New Year Card?
Yes that's right, a Lao New Year card! Alright, so we know that creating new year cards is not a real Lao tradition, although I must admit I was feeling particularly festive this year and wanted to be able to hand out some nice cards with a bit of money to my family and friends. And yes I know that in of itself is not necessarily a Lao tradition either though in Laos it's customary to give utilitarian type gifts during this time to loved ones.

Ringing in Pbeemai (Lao New Year) in the Sleepy Capital of Vientiane, Laos | Around This World
After (barely) surviving tubing in Vang Vieng, Laos, we boarded a crowded minivan for the ride down to the quiet capital of Laos, Vientiane. Since it was the beginning of Pbeemai, the Lao New Year, the city was even more quiet than usual, with most shops and restaurants closed to celebrate.
