Why is the buddhist new year celebrated three days after the first full moon?

It say’s in my buddhist notes, that the buddhist new year (celebration) starts at the first full moon in april, and goes for three days from then.
Why? Is there an explanation?

  1. God answers all questions said:

    If you use a lunar calendar, you measure things by phases of the moon, hence the full moon. April is the planting season, hence the start of the agricultural year.
