The Songkran Festival is also a period when the Thai people cleanse and pour water mixed with Thai fragrance on Buddha images. The festival also showcases a bathing ritual where the people pour water on the senior Buddhist monks. This process is believed to bring good luck to them.

Song Kran festival is one of the most famous festival in Thailand but no more people know about the purpose of this festival.
As I searched on Internet, I found the purpose of Song kran is water splash in the hottest month in the year. Moreover, that is a big chance to go back home and pay gratitude to elders.

For me, the Song Kran festival is the big festival that makes people go back to their hometown and meet their family.

I think it represents purification and the washing away of one's sins and bad luck.
As a festival, people who have moved away usually return home to their loved ones and elders.

In my opinion, I think Songkran day is Thai New Year Day. In the past, people celebrated this day by going to temple and making a merit. Moreover, splashing water might mean washing the old and bad things from the old year, and cleaning ourselves to gain new things in new year. Nowadays, Songkran has applied many things, it changes a lot about the celebration. By the way, I still do some same things like the past did. Songkran is my favorite festival, I always have fun with it.

As a festival of unity, people who have moved away usually return home to their loved ones and elders.
Paying reverence to ancestors is an important part of Songkran tradition.
The holiday is known for its water festival.

I think it is the days for people who works so far from their home to go back home to see their family. I am a person who like Songkran festival because I have holidays, and I can go back to see my family and old friends. I like to hang out with my friends. I hope that this Songkran I can see all my friends, I have many things to talk with them. I miss them so much.

Well, I do not exactly know about the purpose of Songkran.
It might be for having people to get reunion with their families.
When Songkran comes, I usually go back to my hometown and travel to somewhere with my family.
Anyway, now I don't play splashing water in Songkran festival anymore. I think it's kind of boring.

Songkran is known as Thai new year, on Songkran day many families gather to celebrate the new year together. The activities such as make merit, splash the water, express respect to elders by pouring scented water onto our parents' and grandparents' hands.

I think about the way that people coming home. I meant that when we have such a big festival like this all people want to return to their family for a good days. Maybe it's the traditional of Thai culture that the family is the important one and the bond between people in the family is harder than the other society around the world.

For me, Sonkran's Day is a time when family and friends gather to spend quality times together.
My hometown is far away from MSU. Songkran is a time to come back home.

It is sad to tell that I have to do all assignments in this Songkarn.
I have no plans to play water with anyone.
Normally, I have a party with my family at my home.
As you know there is a family day during Songkarn festival.
It is a very good and worth time to be with family.

The purpose of the Songkran festival is to show love and respect for the grandparents.
People who live in the other provinces will take the opportunity to come back and water the elders for the prosperity of life in the future. Songkran can also called the Thai New Year.

Songkran festival is a famous traditional Thai new year.
I think this festival is important because it is a time that family can spend quality times together.
Moreover, It is the day that we splash water to cool off.

The purpose of Songkran is the throwing of water.
April is the hottest month. So, people want to pass it quickly because of the heat.
Songkran means to move or pass into.
There are many traditions observed during the festival, however, the tradition enjoyed by all.

Songkran is an occasion that symbolizes kindness, love, empathy, and gratitude, using water to cleanse and to wish for plenty of rain. People who have moved away usually return home to their loved ones and elders.
