Songkran Festival is the Thai traditional New Year taking place on April 13 of every year. On this day, the younger people will visit their elder relatives with a metal bowl floated with colorful petals, scented candles and “a small branch of pomegranate tree” for sprinkling over elderly persons to express their good wishes. Most of elderly persons will bless them back and give them a handkerchief or some mascots in return. As soon as the people finish their auspicious ceremonies and their lunch, they will prepare their water containers and scented powder in front of their houses in the hope of gently pouring water over those who pass by and bless each other.Hua Hin Songkran Festival starts early in the morning with alms offering to Buddhist novices as the local tradition. At home young people pour water on the hands of the elderly and ask them for blessing.
