Songkran, Thailand

The Songkran Festival in Thailand, is the Buddhist celebration of the New Year Day. It happen in April 13 to 15 but in some cities is a seven days long holiday.

The original means of throwing the water is a way to respect the people, blessing and wishing good luck to them, but the holiday evolved in a playful water-fighting.

For some days people make a water fighting party everywhere which is the more flashy celebration, however the Songkran Festival has a religious meaning.

However the Songkran has a religious meaning, the more flashy celebration is a water fighting everywhere and everybody is involved!

The traditional greeting is “สวัสดีปีใหม่” (sawatdi pi mai), basically “Happy New Year”.
