Loy Krathong at D-PREP

Loy Krathong takes place on the evening of the full moon of the 12th month in the traditional Thai lunar calendar. Celebrated nationwide, it is one of the country’s most beautiful festivals.

Krathongs are traditionally made from banana trees and contain candles, incense, and flowers. It is believed that by floating the krathong on water, it carries away bad luck and pays respects to the goddess of water.

The afternoon Loy Krathong celebrations began with a brief history retelling, followed by a dance by the adorable kindergarten students.

Then the classes presented their krathongs, and the event was concluded by a Noppamas Contest which involved a student and a family member. Fun and excitement was had by all!
