Songkrant or Thai New Year 2013/2556
It was an auspicious and joyful day which a lot of people came to join us. The morning session was full of meritorious activities and the afternoon session was full of entertainment. That was really nice day.
The morning session was open for those who wanted to do meritorious activities for themselves or dedication to their relatives who passed away as it is regarded as a family day and it is a good time to do a wholesome thing for those who we love, even they passed away. Those who are alive, we just share our lovely time with them.
Thai New Year always reminds Thai people of where is a good luck in the morning, at noon, and in the evening. According to the ancient story, a good luck is on human face in the morning, so human beings wash their face or make up in the morning. A good luck is in our mind at noon, so human beings learn to calm down when they are in hot temper. And a good luck is on their foot in the evening, so before going to bed human beings clean their feet. It is good to know, so we can put this knowledge into practice; wash our face in the morning, calm down when we are in hot temper and clean our feet when we are going to sleep. When we practise that, we can be lucky.
