Loy Krathong Stuff


Tomorrow is a great Thai holiday; Loy Krathong day. This day is set aside for Thai people to say thank you to the Goddess Mae Khongkha, the Mother of Water.


  Loy means to float and a krathong is a lotus shaped vessel made of banana leaves. The krathong is made of banana leaves, a candle, three joss sticks, and flower decorations.

I have to say, if you're going to have a holiday, showing thanks for water seems to be good choice.

Happy Loy Krathong!
