Loy Kratong

November 12, 2006

Last weekend was the Loy Kratong festival.  It is held on the 13th lunar month during the full moon (the November full moon). 

I love finding a festival celebrating nature.  There are two activities, first the lanterns, which are big white balloons that are lit and released.  Some of them have fireworks as a “tail”.  It creates a sparkly tail like a comet.  They are usually white, but I saw some colored ones, and some groups write notes on them.
