An entire nation having a big water fight! This is one of the fun descriptions that the Songkran Festival has earned in recent years. Songkran is one of Thailand’s major festivals that has gained worldwide fame.
The festival is actually the Thai’s version of a New Year celebration, but it is celebrated later in the year, around the second or third week of April. This is because the dates for Songkran are originally based on Buddhist calendar and not the western one. Water is the prime element that rules the festival. According to tradition, the sprinkling of water is a symbol of good luck and respect to Buddha.
