Songkran Festival aka Water Festival is a celebration of traditional Thai New Year for the Thai people. This is a festival that attracts Thais and foreigners from all over the world to experience a bathing ritual where the people pour water mixed with Thai fragrance on the senior Buddhist monks and Buddha images. It's believed to bring good luck to them. Many beliefs are associated with the pouring of water at this Festival. It's believed to bring longevity, good health, prosperity, a cleansing of bad things, a symbol of fertility, rainfall for the coming year and so on.
