Songkran Festival the Thai new year.

Songkarn Festival is the new year in Thailand. This year it was the 12-15th of April.

Part of it is religious, but there is also a fun part where people are playing with water a symbol for cleansing and functions to cool off the heat. There is a lot of story behind its origin. What we see today is the more adapted part of the ritual, people splashing water to each other. During 12-15th of april all of Thailand becomes a water park where strangers splash water to each other for fun.
