Merit-making in Pattaya is on the 19th of April.
Merit-making involves food giving especially to monks. In turn, people get blessed. People perform merit-making acts which includes releasing birds and fish, and also bathing Buddha images. The elderly and respectable people are also watered in the palms and they in return give blessings to the younger people.
Pattaya People Media Group also held a palm-watering ceremony at our office on the 19th April. All staff showed thanks and gratitude to each other and blessed each other the very best of happiness, good health, and successfulness for this Thai New Year. They also pass their good wishes to all our readers and viewers. Happy Songkran!
