nih sdikit info tentang LOY KRATHONG :
Perhaps the most charming of all of Thailand’s festivals, Loy Krathong takes place on the full moon evening in November. ‘Loy’ means to float, and a ‘krathong’ is a basket made from banana stem and leaves and is decorated with flowers, a candle and three incense sticks. During the evening, local people will go to their local canals, rivers or the sea to float their krathongs which they believe will bring them good luck in asking for forgiveness from the Goddess of Waters for the abuse she has suffered over the past year. People usually make a wish at the same time and some people believe that if the candle remains burning until the krathong is out of sight then their wish will come true. Lovers often float a krathong together. Northern Thailand has a different type of krathong, a hot air balloon called a ‘Khom Loy’, and these are now often found all over the country. The sight of thousands of khom loys rising into the sky and a river or the sea filled with flickering candles is truly magical. Firework displays and ‘Nong Noppamas’ beauty contests are also held.
