Candle Lent Festival


Kajonkietsuksa School is a private English Programme school which values the preservation of the Thai tradition. We teach students the origin of Rain Retreat festival to inherit the precious Thai cultural heritage. The Candle Procession festival is held before the first day of Buddhist Lent (The first day of the eight waning moon every year). The Buddhists in Thailand will go to temples, make merit and offer candles, food and basic essentials. Although the offering of candles ceremony has changed overtimes since candles have been replaced by light bulbs, candles offering remains a tradition within Thailand as part of Candle Procession Festival.
