    Happy Songkran!
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | April 3, 2018
    As you probably know, Thailand is a Buddhist country, with only a tiny 1% being Christian. Easter isn’t ignored though and you will certainly find gifts and eggs in the bigger stores (and even the odd Easter bunny hopping around!). However, Easter in Thailand often falls around one of our own favourite festivals - Songkran, which is our Thai New Year! April is the hottest month of the year in Thailand, and Songkran is often seen as a great excuse to go completely mad and have lots of fun! We have huge water fights and street parties that often go on all week! Most places close down for Songkran and the larger cities empty as everyone travels home. Songkran is the festival for family reunions, temple visits and annual house cleaning. Many Thais observe the holidays by spending time with families and friends and by performing religious rites such as ‘Bathing the Buddha image’. Buddhists pour fragrant water over Buddha statues both at the temple and at home. The more religious will perform similar celebrations the whole festival. Untitled

    Mother’s Day Thai Style
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | February 27, 2018
    b45c976b8c1fc28d75c0c8f01a82b055 Mother’s Day in Thailand is doubly special. It is celebrated on the Queen’s birthday, August 12th and everyone has a day off to celebrate properly! On the day before the event, schools in Thailand typically host a Mother’s Day ceremony. Students spend weeks beforehand rehearsing performances and dances. Mothers come to see the shows, and are then treated to their children kneeling before them to thank them for all that they do – and it’s not uncommon for all parties involved to shed a few tears! In the morning of Mother’s Day itself, ceremonies are held to give offerings of food and other alms to Thailand’s saffron-robed Buddhist monks. Prayers and various devotions are offered up for mothers (and the Queen, who is considered to be the mother of the land) The traditional Mother’s Day gift in Thailand is jasmine. This delicate white flower is imbued with a sweet perfumed fragrance. Called “dok mali” in Thai, jasmine is used in ...
