ABOUT SONGKRAN (WATER FESTIVAL)

Songkran is the Thai New Year's national holiday. Songkran is 13 April every year, but the holiday period extends from 14 – 15 April. In 2018 the Thai cabinet extended the festival nationwide to five days, 12 – 16 April, to enable citizens to travel home for the holiday. In 2019, the holiday will be observed 12 – 16 April as 13 April falls on a Saturday. The word "Songkran" comes from the Sanskrit word samkranti, literally "astrological passage", meaning transformation or change. The term was borrowed from Makar Sankranti, the name of a Hindu harvest festival celebrated in India in January to mark the arrival of spring. It coincides with the rising of Aries on the astrological chart and with the New Year of many calendars of South and Southeast Asia, in keeping with the Buddhist/Hindu solar calendar.

In Thailand, New Year is now officially celebrated on 1 January, Songkran was the official New Year until 1888, when it was switched to a fixed date of 1 April. Then in 1940, this date was shifted to 1 January. The traditional Thai New Year Songkran was transformed into a national holiday.

The holiday is known for its water festival. Major streets are closed to traffic, and are used as arenas for water fights. Celebrants, young and old, participate in this tradition by splashing water on each other. Traditional parades are held and in some venues "Miss Songkran" is crowned where contestants are clothed in traditional Thai dress.

Thai and foreign tourists up during Songkran. Up to 500,000 foreigners visit Thailand every year during Songkran.
