The Songkran festival is celebrated in Thailand as the traditinal New Year's Day. It coincides with the New Year of many calendars of South and Southeast Asia. It is the longest celebration in the country. Street parties, family reunions and friendly water fights are all combined, make Songkran the grandest and most colorful event.
