Songkran: Thai New Year

| 0 comments

It was mostly about Thailand new year.  They had a water fight that went on for 3 days, and had a parade with Buddhas. They had a moat that covered the outline of the city.  The celebration was called Songkran.  They had temples that you have to take your shoes off.

Today we had a geo show Skype,  and it was about Thailand and we thought it was pretty cool. Every year they get water guns and squirt it all over everyone. We think it looked fun, and  we wish we could go there, but it is too far away. Anyway, every year they  also make a parade. There are be cool statues made out of gold, and they are Buddha people. They also have a museum about Buddha, and you have to take off your shoes for respect. Also, they make Buddha statue and it depends how big they are about holding the Buddha. The kids are just are holding up the signs and some other ones walk the whole parade the whole entire time and the rest of them are squirting water at the parade or at the people or at the Buddha. The people who hold the Buddha sprayed water back.

Today we learned about Thailand with the Geo Show. We learned how they celebrate by getting into water fights or by just throwing water at people. They get a bucket of water or a water gun. We also learned about Buddhas. There are gold kinds, and silver, and also emerald kinds. There are lots of kinds of Buddhas!

Today we learned how Thailand celebrates new years. We learned how Thailand celebrates new years with Geo Show. They had Buddha when they had a parade. Then they had a water fight that lasted 3 days straight. What surprised me the most was when they through scented water at the Buddhas. He also showed us how to make banana coconut milk. There are some made of gold and emerald.
