Songkran Water Festival
20 designs collected by spoonflower
To celebrate Thai New Year, the country comes together for what has been deemed “the world’s largest water fight.” Water is spiritually purifying in Thai culture, and it is believed to bless you with fortune and happiness for the year ahead. What started as ritual bathing of Buddha images has really evolved: crowds of people roam the streets with water squirters and buckets to douse each other (and visitors or tourists). With average daily temperatures in April hovering around 95 degrees Fahrenheit in the area, you’ll want to make a breezy Chiffon robe in a design inspired by this festival to keep your cool.
