Songkran ('The Water Festival') holiday, goes back to pre-Buddhist rituals during spring festival where water was thrown, as a symbol of luck, as people tried to bring rain to the spring crops. Then it became a religious custom to wash the Buddha statues once a year. Many Thais see the holiday as a time to wash away their sins from the past year. (AP Photo/J. Pat Carter)
