Families gather to express their respects to the elders by pouring scented water onto the hands of their parents and grandparents and to present them gifts. The elders in return wish the youngsters good luck and prosperity. Thais also clean their homes, temples, and public buildings to bring good luck - as well as perform bathing rites for Buddha images and monks.
A very popular part of this water festival has always been the splashing and pouring water on friends and passers-by.
For 2022, the official dates are April 13th through 15th.
