It's Songkran time in Thailand! In the past, water was used symbolically to wash away the bad and to bring good fortune, however now it is seen primarily as an enjoyable and giant water fight. Songkran marks the beginning of the traditional Thai New Year. #Songkran #Thailand #WaterFight Photo credit: bangkokscoop.com
