Loi Krathong Festival
Loi Krathong is traditionally performed on the full moon night of the twelfth lunar month, which usually falls on some day in November.

The floating of a 'Krathong' a bananaleaf cup is intended to float away ill fortune as well as to express apologies to Khongkha or Ganga, the River Goddess.

Some believe that the ritual is meant to worship the Buddha's footprint on the bank of the Narmada River, while others say that it is to pay respect to Phra Uppakhut, one of the Lord Buddha's great disciples.
