Festivals : Loy Kratong 2014
A "Loy Kratong" means floating lotus flower, and Thai will float their Kratong on rivers, lakes, sea and even swimming pool. And of course make a wish for good luck. The festival originate from the ancient ritual to pay respect to the water spirits and to wash all sins away. In Thailand this festival is at the same time as the "Yi Peng" festival from the ancient Lanna Kingdom what is celebrated by lanterns (Khom Loi) that will be floated into the sky. Originally only in Northern Thailand but is seems to be fashion now all over Thailand to do after you have floated your Kratong. Enjoy a wonderful Thai festival!
