Loi Krathong

Yesterday was Loi Krathong, a festival celebrated annually throughout Thailand. The name could be translated as "to float a basket", and comes from the tradition of making krathong (decorated baskets).
We made krathongs from banana trunks and decorated them with folded banana leaves, flowers, candles and incense sticks. At 8pm we went down to the river, the candles and incense was lit, we made wishes and floated our Krathongs on the water. Lanterns were also lit and sent off into the night sky. Thanks to Gik, Nook, Tar, Naamwan for showing us and helping!
