Myanmar: Graduation Ceremony

Dawn describes the unique graduation ceremony in Myanmar. “Myanmar graduation ceremonies are different from western ones. There are two days: rehearsal day and the actual ceremony day. I don't know who started this rule, but for the two days, most wear two different suits. On rehearsal day, we don't need to wear the black robe, so that day is the best day for the girls to show off themselves. But for both days, females have to wear Myanmar traditional dress, while males can wear either full Western suit, or Myanmar traditional suit.”
