Spirit, beauty, and religion meet during loy krathong

Loy krathong festival: 11th november 2019
This is when people go to their local waterway to float small bowl shaped containers called krathongs in thai.
Inside are three incense sticks, a candle and usually a few coins.
They float the krathong to ask mother nature for forgiveness for polluting the rivers but also to thank her for water that brings life.

I went to a festival recently called yee peng and loy krathong that was near chiang mai.
About 10,00 people were at the festival and it was so crowded, but beautiful and i would definitely do it again.
