This year, the Loy Krathong Festival takes place on Sunday 17th November. Loy Krathong Festival, also known as the Festival of Light, is the most beautiful and picturesque of all Thai celebrations. The festival takes place on the evening of the full moon of the twelfth lunar month (usually in November.) It takes place at this time, because there is the highest tide of the year, known as the ‘great flood season.’

‘Loy’ means ‘to float’ and Krathong refers to the lotus-shaped floating decoration. A traditional Krathong is made from a slice of the trunk of a banana tree. It is then decorated in elaborately folded banana leaves, flowers, three incense sticks and a candle. Some people place, on the Krathong, a nail clipping and some strands of hair, as a symbol of letting go of negative thoughts. A coin may also be included, as an offering to the water gods. Firstly, the candles and the incense sticks are lit and then the Krathong is carefully set afloat on a river, canal, pond or estuary. It is the custom to take part in this festival with your loved ones and to make a silent wish, as you let go of the Krathong.
