Songkran (Thai New Year)
Songkran is one of the biggest and most important Thai holidays.
The 3 day celebration is often combined with the weekend to make a 5 day break.
This holiday is celebrated with parades, religious ceremonies, and festivities throughout the country.
Water plays a big part in this holiday. It is associated with purifying things for the new year, bringing rain for a good harvest, and with fertility.
The tradition of splashing water on people has grown into a multi-day water-fight, where water guns, buckets, and hoses are used to drench everyone in sight. If you are in Thailand during Songkran, expect to get wet!
We hope all of our customers and associates in Thailand have a great Songkran.
