Loy Krathong (LE-TD11)

Legend of Loy Krathong was originated in the royal court of ancient kingdom Sukhothai, the first monarch of Thailand since 700 years ago. Loy Krathong Festival or known as River-Floating-Lanterns, Loy means 'to float' and 'Krathong' means a lotus-shaped vessel made of banana leaves. The Krathong usually contains a candle, tree joss-sticks, some flowers and coins. This festival is very well-known to Thai people and also foreigners, set during the weather is clear, on the full moon night, when the river is high over the country. In the past, people believe that they offer thank to the Goddess of water. Thus, by moonlight, people light the candles and joss-sticks, make a wish and launch their Krathong on canals, rivers or even small ponds. It is believed that the Krathongs can carry away sins and bad lucks, and the time to start the coming new year to be joyful and happy as suffering are floated away.
