Loy Krathong



Since i did one for Songkran Songkran by bakki 

Might as well make one for Loy Krathong. Wish i have more time for it but here you go.…

What is Loy Krathong?

The history behind the festival is complex, and Thais celebrate for many reasons.  The main rice harvest season has ended and it’s time to thank the Water Goddess for a year’s worth of her abundant supply, as well as an apology for polluting the waters. Some believe that this is the time to symbolically ‘float away’ all the anger and grudges you have been holding onto, and including a fingernail or a lock of hair is seen as a way of letting go of the dark side of yourself, to start anew free of negative feelings. If your candle stays alight until your Krathong disappears out of sight, it means a year of good luck.…

I used to go loy krathong every other year but it's been a while since my last time going. It's very crowded. ... So many people..

And at this point there's already too many people put their kratong to the water ( kinda contradict the "apology to the waters" part).
Thai government will clean and remove those kratong afterward so don't worry. 

It looks pretty nice at night. But I'm fine with just watching from the TV haha.
