Loi Krathong Festival

We were invited to a party for  some Thai friends. It is a festival which happens every full moon night of November in Thailand and places where  Thai people are living like here in Kauai. The festival called "Loy Kratong Day". Loy means "to float" and Kratong means "leaf cup". Everyone has a lantern usually made of banana leaf  (which I did try to help my Thai friend while she was making it for us). The leaf cup is used to hold a candle which we  put in the water to float and go away with our wishes. We had a magical night light!
