Loy Krathong 2022

Loy Krathong, the Festival of Lights, is probably Thailand’s most enchanting festival and was celebrated in traditional style at RIS Swiss Section today. 

The teachers of our Thai department had once again prepared a great program including student dance and song performances and Krathong workshops where the students crafted their own little lotus-shaped rafts with a piece of banana tree trunk, leaves, and flowers. 

All held together by wooden nails to minimize pollution of the canals and lakes that the little vessels will set sail on tonight to carry away the bad luck to Buddha.
