Loy Krathong

[h3]Loy Krathong[/h3] One of the most popular festivals in early November is the Loy Kra-thong Festival. The name could be translated as “to float a basket”, and comes from the tradition of making kra-thong or buoyant, decorated baskets, which are then floated on a river. The festival starts in the evening when there is a full moon in the sky People of all walks of life carry their Kra-thongs to the nearby rivers. After lighting candles and joss-sticks and making a wish, they gently place the Kra-thongs on the water and let them drift away till they go out of sight. DSC02737
