The story of Loy krathong, full moon day of the 12th lunar month, usually in the middle of November, is the celebration of Loy Krathong. It is considered one of Thailand’s most popular annual festivals. The rainy season has ended and the rivers and canals are full to overflowing.

Loy Krathong. “Loy” means to float, and “Krathong” is a leaf cup usually made with a banana leaf. This floating leaf cup is decorated with flowers, incense, candles and often a small coin.

In Thai folktales, four goddesses personify the elements of nature: Mae Pra Toranee (Mother Earth), Mae Pra Pai (Goddess of the wind), Mae Pra Plerng (Goddess of fire) and Mae Kong Ka (Mother Water). The festival of Loy Krathong gives thanks to Mae Kong Ka for her bounty in “providing water not only for drinking and washing, but also for the essential means of livelihood of most Thais: agriculture, fishing and transport.

Loy Krathong is the time when people ask for Mae Kong Ka’s forgiveness since they had used and polluted the water. Many people believe that as their krathong floats away they have been forgiven by Mae Kong Ka (Goddess of Water) and that they have symbolically washed away their sins of the past year.
