It might be world widely known as Thailand’s Biggest Water Festival. It is right though! However, I have just revealed the other essence of Songkarn this year. By joining Songkarn two years ago, Songkarn gave me a small meaning just like what the other foreigners might be thinking. A festival to splash the water.
Thanks God! This year will be a little be different for me. Another culture that should be interesting to be written about on this blog.
The Songkran celebration is rich with symbolic traditions. Mornings begin with merit-making. Visiting local temples and offering food to the Buddhist monks is commonly practiced. On this specific occasion, performing water pouring on Buddha statues is considered an iconic ritual for this holiday.
It represents purification and the washing away of one’s sins and bad luck. As a festival of unity, people who have moved away usually return home to their loved ones and elders. As a way to show respect, younger people often practice water pouring over the palms of elders’ hands. Paying reverence to ancestors is also an important part of Songkran tradition.
And this year, maybe we should complete these six (6) things that should be done during the Songkarn Festival.
- Visiting local temples
- Offering food to Buddhist monks
- Water pouring to Buddha image
- Water pouring to elders
- Praying to ancestors
The thumbnail is one of the six (6) things that I have done, left five (5) things to do to get another essence of Songkarn before having a party of course. #lol
