The Songkran festival is not just about the enjoyment of splashing cold water, but also a period when the Thai people cleanse and pour water mixed with Thai fragrance on Buddha images. The festival also showcases a bathing ritual where the people pour water on the senior Buddhist monks. This process is believed to bring good luck to them.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Songkran holiday has been postponed. Everyone is encouraged to stay at home and avoid the usual gatherings during the 3-day festival.
Sandee Thai Language School will be closed from Monday, 13 April to Wednesday, 15 April 2020. We will open again on Thursday, 16 April 2020 and online classes will resume as well.
