        The 14 th of April  is designated as Family Day to celebrate family love and togetherness.

The importance of Songkran Festival

        Songkran is regarded as one of the most important traditions in Thailand because it encompasses the three major values in the Thai way of life which are:

        Value of family: Songkran is the time when family members come together to show appreciation, love and respect as well as making merit and paying homage to their ancestors.

        Value of society: Through active participation and interaction with each other, Songkran brings the people in the community together to enhance goodwill and unity in the society.

        Value of religion: Making merit by offering food to monks, going to the temples and attending Buddhist sermons are auspicious activities done during Songkran .
