Loi Krathong Festival


Loi Krathong Festival
 
Loi Krathong takes place on the night of the full moon in November and is the most magical of all Thai Festivals. Small lotus-shaped boats woven from banana leaves, called krathongs, are floated on water.
 
These vessels contain small flowers, candles, incense and offerings to thank Mother Water for providing water for them to use. The people also believe that it they place a strand of hair or nail clipping in the krathong their troubles will be carried away with it.
