Songkran Festival 2015

Songkran or Water Festival is a Thai traditional New Year Day which falls on April 13-15 every year. It is one of the most important festivals that has been performed not only in Thailand but also in neighbouring countries. Traditionally, the activities in Songkran day begin in the early morning when faithful Thai Buddhists go to the temple to make merits by offering food to monks and listening to the Dhamma talk. In the afternoon, Thai Buddhists sprinkle scented water on Buddha images. During this time, the younger people ask blessings from the elders and pour scented water over their elders' hands. In return, the elders wish them good health, happiness and prosperity. Additionally, anyone who goes out on the street is likely to get a thorough soaking. The splashing water over friends or anyone will give them a new year blessing.
