Today Thailand will be celebrating Loi Krathong, a festival meant to honor and thank the Thai goddess of water: Phra Mae Khongkha. Thais fashion little boats out of banana leaves and float the origami crafts on rivers throughout Thailand. The little handmade boats will be decorated with candles, coins, incense, and flowers. Floating the candled leaf boats down stream represents letting go of one’s anger and other bad attributes and supposedly brings good luck and fortune.
I will be celebrating Loi Krathong locally with my Thai friends. More pictures and stories to come!
How many miles are you logging this week? Have any races coming up?
