Loy Krathong celebrations in Thailand
Nov 15, 2019
One of the best parts of being able to work with a team from across the world is that we get the pleasure of learning different local traditions and participate in local celebrations. This month our team in Thailand prepared for the Loy Krathong festival.
Having lived in Thailand for the last 10 years, the Loy Krathing festival is a special one to me. It is amazing to be able to participate when the Thais prepare their own Krathongs and let them out on the water together with friends and loved ones. The Krathong on the water is a symbol of letting go of bad happenings from the past.
This year our team in Pratamnak Hill had a Krathong making competition with the theme "environmentally friendly" with a total of 12 teams participating. It was amazing to see the creative and beatuiful Karthongs that were made!
