Songkran is the Thai New Year's festival, which is celebrated annually from April 13th to April 15th. This festival is also known as the "Water Festival" because people traditionally splash water on each other to cleanse their souls and bring good luck for the new year.
Before the official Songkran break, Plusfoam has prepared events and activities for our Plusfoam's friends to thank them for all the hard work they have done for us. We have prepared unlimited food and drinks, and stages for the invited DJ to party with joy. Rosehong, our Plusfoam's CEO, has expressed his feeling towards this festival.
In the Songkran party of 2023, let's fully express the emotions of Songkran that have been suppressed by the Corona pandemic. Through this party event, we can learn to love, understand, learn order, and respect more. I hope that all the worries and concerns that have been frozen in our hearts will be washed away with cool water. I hope that all the employees and their families will return home safely without any accidents. On April 12th, 2023, let's cherish the precious memories of all the employees and their families who have suffered together.
The origins of Songkran can be traced back to ancient times when people would pour water over Buddha statues and onto the hands of elders as a sign of respect and to ask for blessings. Over time, this practice evolved into the water fights and festivals that we see today.
During Songkran, the streets of Thailand are filled with people dancing, singing, and throwing water at each other. It's a time for families to come together, for friends to reunite, and for people to forget their worries and enjoy the festivities. One of the most popular activities during Songkran is the water fights. People use buckets, water guns, and hoses to drench each other in the water. Another important tradition during Songkran is visiting the local temple. Many Thai people make offerings to Buddha and receive blessings from the monks. They also pour water on Buddha statues as a sign of respect and to wash away their sins from the past year.
