Finally, Songkran 2018 is coming and Thai’s go crazy
From Friday 13. to Sunday 15. of April we celebrate Sonkeang 2018 Thailand goes crazy.
Every year, Thai people can’t wait to celebrate Songkran. It is the biggest annual holiday in Thailand. People go home, to show their respect to their elders. Here there is a ceremonial washing of the elders on one day of Songkran. During and after this ritual a lot of drinking and eating is going on. I think these people spend their whole year’s savings during these few days. Thai’s go crazy on Songkran. Everybody eats and drinks all they like. Our small village is packed with people for about a week.
School’s are off already since end of March and the hottest season in Thailand is approaching. What a relief, Water Festival.
Millions of Thai people move around the country, to get to where they have family and friends. From about the 7th. of April this year, streets are not safe anymore. Police are on high alert for drinking and driving. Traffic on all highways going out of Bangkok are packed with cars and buses of people going home.
The water here in Thailand is a very important element and during the hot season, many places run out of running water. If you get splashed with water, it means, the person, making you wet wants to give you all the luck for the next year. It is also common to smear the faces of people you like with a mix of baby powder and water, like that you have the chance to touch strangers, what usually isn’t proper here in crazy Thailand.
The whole party is a very friendly and happy happening. So if you join, open your heart and enjoy.
Don’t drive during Songkran 2017 Thailand !!!!!
