Songkran, also known as the Water Festival, is the traditional Thai New Year and is celebrated from April 13 to 15. The most obvious part of the celebrations, in which everyone joins, is the throwing of water. Buckets, hoses, and water shooters are all part of the fun, and no one avoids a soaking or being smeared with white talcum powder. Songkran has become a major attraction for foreign tourists, and large numbers visit Thailand during this time specifically to take part in the exuberance.
