It is "Sonkran"time. Songkran falls in the hottest time of the year in Thailand, at the end of the dry season. The Festival has traditionally been celebrated as the New Year for many centuries. It is observed nationwide, and includes religious rituals relating to "cleansing". Sonkran has also become the craziest water-throwing, drinking and merrymaking time of the year. Serious accidents and fatalities are inevitable.
