Loi Krathong

Happy Loi Krathong!

On the November Full Moon, Thai people celebrate Loi Krathong.  This year it is the 12th.

Traditionally, small lotus shaped baskets or boats made of banana leaves containing flowers, incense, candles and coin are floated on rivers, lakes and canals.  Here on the island, the Thai people float them in the sea.  As the island is a mix of Thai cultures, many also launch hot air paper balloons, a northern tradition.
