Loy Kratong or the "Festival of Light" (Nov 20)
Loy Kratong is on the full moon night of the twelfth lunar month. The festival expresses gratitude to the goddess of water “Phra Mae Kongka”. The best part is making the kratongs, traditionally made of banana leaves and trunks with candles. Some pictures of my Dad and family celebrating Loy Kratong 2005:
