Loi Krathong Festival Thailand - Celebrations under way

Loi Krathong takes place on the evening of the full moon of the 12th month in the traditional Thai Lunar Calendar and comes from the tradition of making a krathong or buoyant, decorated baskets, which are then floated on a river. On the night of the full moon, Thais launch their krathong on a river, canal, or a pond, making a wish as they do so and this festival probably originates from an ancient rural ritual of paying respect to water spirits.
