Songkran Festival in Thailand!

April 13th-15th marked the annual Songkran Festival in Thailand. How did you celebrate!?

Commonly referred to as the water festival, Songkran marks the Thai New Year, and is one of the biggest celebrations of the year throughout the country.  Many people take to the streets with water guns, balloons, or just plain old buckets, in order to drench passerbys with water.  Traditionally thought to cleanse the mind, body and spirit, and wash away bad luck, you might consider yourself fortunate if you find yourself getting drenched with water during the Songkran festival!  Fortunately, this is typically the hottest time of year in Thailand, so a light soaking might come as a nice relief!

To everyone Teaching English in Thailand right now, we hope you had a fun and safe Songkran!
