Happy Songkran Festival, Thai New year

Songkran festival is celerated in Thailand as the traditional New Year's Day from 13 to 15 April.

Songkran Festival is long holiday for Thai people, some company stop they working since 9 Apr - 17 Apr but for me is 13 - 17 Apr'11.

Normally Thai people back to their hometown for say “Sawasdee Pee Mai or Happy New Year” to their parent. And our traditional way, Rodnam Damhua, take a bath on their hand of elders for celebrate them.

For my family, me & dad & mom & my sis, we went to my hometown for Rodnam Damhua my grandmother and my grandfather.
