Loy Krathong 2015

  
   
 Today 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.
