ประเพณีลอยกระทง or Loy Krathong (Loi Krathong), one of Thailand’s most enchanting annual festivals. Loy Krathong, is celebrated on the night of the full moon in the 12th month of the traditional Thai Lunar Calendar. In the Western calendar, this year falls on 11-13 November. Also known as the “Festival of Light”
The history of the Loy Krathong Festival is rather obscure. Some people claim that the tradition of Loy Krathong originates in Sukhothai and was first organized by a court lady called Nopphamat. Others believe it was a Brahmanic festival that was adapted by Thai buddhist to honor the Buddha. Anyway, the ritual of Loy Krathong is about paying respect to the Goddess of the Water showing gratitude for the plentiful use of water and ask for forgiveness in the ensuing pollution. It is also about getting ride of misfortune and bad things that happened in the past and asking for good luck in the future. For this people float a “Krathong” in the river.
