Happy Songkran!

Happy Songkran to all the OP peeps in Thailand! This is the beginning of the new solar year filled with parties and celebrations that include splashing others in water as a blessing. This also includes visiting temples but it also includes parties and water fights with water pistols, water balloons, etc., nationwide.

It is important to note that this symbolic holiday also involves the pouring of water on the heads of Buddha statues as a means to purify one’s self from their sins and bad luck. So it is not just party all the time! Plus the different regions of Thailand have various ways of further celebrating this holiday, by either using “firecrackers to repel bad luck” (North) to “avoid spending money” (South) either way this holiday is rich in fun and tradition.

So Happy Songkran!
