On Nov 28th we celebrated Loy Krathong which is one of the grandest festivals that takes place in Thailand every year and is sometimes called the “Festival of Lights” due to the twinkling lights on the krathong boats that are floated on rivers and streams. To mark this festival The Oriental restaurant floating their own Kraythong on the canal, by the water’s edge.
We were joined by Buddhist Monks from The Buddhavihara Temple (Wat Mahathat) to tell us about the significance of the event and to mark the occasion with prayers and chanting
In Thailand, people will go down to their local rivers to float their candle boat of incense sticks and coins and pray for forgiveness from Mother Nature for polluting the waterways. As they crouch there and watch their kraythong float away under the gaze of the full moon, the Thai people believe that the kraythong is also floating away their bad luck.
