Songkran is the traditional Thai New Year, often referred to as The Thai Water Festival owing to the tradition of splashing water while offering blessings.
Songkran in Thailand is an occassion when families reunite to pay respect to the parents and elderly by pouring water on the hands and, in return, the elderly give out blessings.
