| || ||Title: Loy Krathong & the Water Goddess
Author: Lambert, John
Description: Loi Krathong has been called the most important and significant holiday of the year for the Thai people as well as parts of Laos and Myanmar (Shan state). It was recently celebrated here in Thailand, but in much less fanfare due to the current massive floods still affecting greater Bangkok. What is it all about? How does it play out with the current flooding situation? Is there room for interpretation?
