    Happy Songkran!

    We celebrate Songkran festival (or Thai new year) from 13 to 15 April.
    However, the government usually announces more holiday so it lasts four to
    five days.

    We visit family, go to a temple, and throw water.

    April is the hottest month of the year, and it is the school holidays, so
    we all enjoy throwing water. I also do.

    Hi JP Coakley. Amazing footage! Love the editing and music. I just got back
    from Thailand and got to experience the Songran Water Festival. I
    unfortunately didn’t have a camera to take any video footage that was
    waterproof (and I was busy shooting water pistols!). I’d love a copy of it!
    If only youtube allowed it. Each time I watch this clip, it reminds me of
    being there.. 🙂 If your willing to email it to me, I’d be so grateful.
