One of the most important festivals in Thailand is the Songkran Festival. It is held to welcome the Thai New Year, and is usually from April 13-15. In the beginning, the date was based on astrological calculations, but now, the Thai government sets the date. It is also the longest holiday in Thailand, so most people go home, much like Christmas or Thanksgiving in the United States.
