Do you know why Thai people celebrate the Lantern festival or Loy Krathong?

Elephant Retirement Park (Chiang Mai, Thailand)

Do you know why Thai people celebrate the Lantern festival or Loy Krathong?

 

Most beliefs are related to Buddhism. For example, Thai people believed that it is the worship of Ket Kaew Chulamanee in the heaven or the worship of the Buddha’s footprint that the load Buddha has left his footprints on the sandy banks of the Namtan River in India. Some believed that floating Krathong into the river for asking the forgiveness from the Goddess of the river. Or some Thai people believed that if the couple’s Krathongs float together, it means the couple will not leave each other or they will stay together forever. For floating the lantern into the sky, Chiang Mai people believed that it is the release of the sorrow and misfortune, and disappear from us. I hope you enjoy the festival.
