LOY KRATHONG FESTIVAL - THAILAND (5 pics)

Posted by GOODSTUFF4U in Blogs   20 Nov 2010   / 2375 views

Tomorrow is a great Thai holiday; Loy Krathong day. This day is set aside for Thai people to say thank you to the Goddess Mae Khongkha, the Mother of Water.

Loy means to float and a krathong is a lotus shaped vessel made of banana leaves. The krathong is made of banana leaves, a candle, three joss sticks, and flower decorations.

By moonlight, people light the candles and joss sticks, make a prayer and launch their krathongs in canals, rivers or small ponds

Loy krathong is really just excuse for Thai women to dress up their daughters.

I will take some photos and upload on Monday
