Sky – Lantern

The symbolism behind the lanterns can be attributed to the religious nature of the festival, and the traditional use of thai lanterns in the country’s history. The festival of Loy Kratong dates back to Ancient days when an early form of this festval of lanterns was based on the beliefs of Brahminism. At this ceremony the people of long ago would devote much time and energy to making their own, strong, beautiful and colourful lanterns, and would then offer the lanterns up at the temples, asking for their wishes to be fulfilled. Saying a prayer, most people would wish to be a brighter, more succesful, and more clever person in the future, with this belief based on the comparison that a bright light can lead one out of darkness in life, and into a lustrous future.
