Songkran is one of the oldest holidays in Thailand. This day, according to the ancient Indian astrological calendar, marks the change of seasons, as well as the transition of the Sun from the constellation of Pisces to the constellation of Aries.

It is customary to celebrate the Thai New Year with a lot of water, as the hot season ends and the rainy season begins.  On the eve of Songkran, Thai families tidy up their houses and burn unnecessary things. It is believed that everything bad belongs to the old year. In the morning, the inhabitants of the country in new clothes go to temples to present food to the monks.
