Songkarn Festival - April 13th
• 1. What is Songkran?
Songkran is Thailand's most famous festival. An important event on the Buddhist calendar, this water festival marks the beginning of the traditional Thai New Year. The name Songkran comes from a Sanskrit word meaning 'passing' or 'approaching'.
• 2. How do the people of Thailand celebrate Songkran?
Water is an important element of Songkran, especially in more recent times when the throwing of water has become a huge part of the annual celebrations and if you're visiting Thailand during this period don't be surprised if you get splashed. Crowds of people roam around throwing bucketfuls of water, using water pistols and just generally soaking anyone in the vicinity. Appreciation of family is another important aspect of the festival, with many Thai people making their way to their hometowns to spend time with older relatives. Buddhists also visit temples throughout Songkran where water is poured on Buddha images and on the hands of Buddhist monks as a mark of respect.
• 3. What happens on the first day of the festival?
Known as Songkran Day, the first day of the festival is an exuberant celebration with processions of Buddha images taking place throughout the country. The Thai people also prepare themselves for the beginning of the new year with lots of house cleaning. On top of that, April 13th is when the water throwing really gets going!
