Loy Krathong Celebration at ACEP

Friday, November 3, 2017

As people in Thailand will be celebrating Loy Krathong, Assumption College English Program held a special ceremony on Friday afternoon November the 3rd, 2017 to celebrate this festival.

‘Loy’ means ‘float’, and a ‘krathong’ is a special Thai small raft particular to the holiday. The traditional krathong is made from a cross-section of a banana tree trunk, which is then elaborately decorated with folded banana leaves and flowers. This is done to pay respects to the goddess of water by releasing these beautiful lotus shaped rafts, decorated with candles, incense and flowers into river, canals and lakes.

The school ceremony started with introductions speeches, an informative video presentation and continued with a wonderful traditional bamboo stick dance. This was performed by both Thai and foreign staff dancing in traditional Thai clothes. This was a very nice display of school unity.

After the speeches, students took turns floating their ‘krathongs’ in the artificial pond assembled in the basketball area next to the Ave Maria Building.

Lastly the students got to enjoy some delicious fried chicken!

All ACEP staff and administrators would like to wish a very happy Loy Krathong to all the members of the ACEP Family.
