Happy Loy Krathong

Today there is a full moon and in Thailand we celebrate Loy Krathong  (floating crown).

Loy Krathong is a chance to wash away the bad in your life and ask for good luck. Traditionally,  thai people make a Krathong  (crown) from flowers and leaves and maybe add some of their own hair and/or nail cuttings and release it into the sea or river, releasing the bad spirits.

Gin has been busy making Krathong and has made us a beautiful one.

We have organised a taxi to take our guests to the festival tonight in Old Town,  where there will food, drink, music and celebrations. Nick and I will be walking to the end of the pier to release our Krathong and ask for some good luck for the future. 

Happy Loy Krathong to all our family,  friends and guests.
