This video was taken last November 6, 2014 during the celebration of Loi Krathong at Lisa Bar Soi 6 in Pattaya, Thailand.
Loi Krathong takes place on the evening of the full moon of the 12th month in the traditional Thai lunar calendar. In the Western calendar this usually falls in November.
On the night of the full moon, Thais launch their krathong on a river, canal or a pond, making a wish as they do so. The festival may originate from an ancient ritual paying respect to the water spirits.
