Pahela Baishakh is celebrated as first day of the Bangla new year. Pahela Baishakh is celebrated with festive mood in whole Bangladesh. It is a national holiday in Bangladesh. Generally Pahela Baisakh starts on April 14. This new year is 1420.
To commemorate Pahela Baishakh, our fellow blogger Sinbad Konick launched a special plugin – Pahela Boishakh Ribbon Plugin. After completing installation, you’ll see a boy is carrying a beautiful flag written Shuvo Noboborso (Welcome To Happy New Year). I already wrote about this plugin – Shuvo Noboborso Plugin one year ago. This is the update version. This new plugin will add a dynamic outlook in your WordPress site. It is specially made for Bangladeshi people to celebrate Bangla New year. I wish everyone will enjoy it.

Pahela Baishakh started from the reign of Akbar. On the first day of the new year, everyone entertains others with sweets.
The main event is generally to open a halkhata or new accounts. In villages, towns and cities, businessmen close their previous account books and open new account. They invite their customers in their shops & entertain with sweets and renew business relationship.
On this special day, Women wear white saree with red borders and beautify themselves with flowers and tips. Men generally wear white pyjama and kurta.
Most people in Bangladesh start the day with the traditional breakfast like panta bhat (cooked rice soaked with water) with fried hilsa fish, green chillies, onion etc. On this day, friends & relatives share with each other mobile sms on Pahela Boishakh.
