Songkran

New Year’s celebrations in Thailand take place from the 13th to the 15th of April. The Songkran festival I experienced in Bangkok wasn’t exactly spiritual and religious (the water is originally meant as a symbol of washing all of the bad away and the use of chalk refers to the way blessings are marked by monks), but it was a lot of fun. Get yourself a water-gun and go play with everyone but be ready to be soaked and covered with chalk.
