My favorite holiday in my country is Songkran. It is a wonderful Thai New Year’s festival. Thai people are happy about this festival because they have a five-day holiday. Everyone visits their families in their cities because it is also a family day in Thailand. On the first day of this celebration, Thai children splash fragrant water on their parents to ask for the best things.
On the second day, people enjoy splashing water on each other in the streets. They also splash water on the people around them to ask for the best things in the coming year. The Water Festival is a part of New Year’s celebration and lasts for three days. When it is over, people can relax for a few days and return to work. I love Songkran very much because I can visit my family and play with water.
