Songkran (Thai: เทศกาลสงกรานต์) is the Thai New Year's national holiday.
The word "Songkran" comes from the Sanskrit word saṃkrānti, literally "astrological passage", meaning transformation or change. It coincides with the rising of Aries on the astrological chart and with the New Year of many calendars of South and Southeast Asia, in keeping with the Buddhist calendar.
Every year when the Sun enters Aries, one of Kapila Brahma's children, called the Nang Songkran (นางสงกรานต์) for that year, and other angels form a procession.
One of them takes the phan with Kapila Brahma's head. The lady stands, sits, reclines, or sleeps on the back of the animal depending on the time. From dawn to midday, the lady will stand on the back of her conveyance.
After midday until the sunset, she will sit down. Between the sunset and midnight, the lady lies down on her vehicle but leaves her eyes open. After midnight, she sleeps.
These postures and other details were previously drawn as part of the Prakat Songkran and now as part of the lunisolar calendar. The procession lasts for 60 minutes around Mount Meru.
This is subsequently called Maha Songkran in order to distinguish from other Songkran that occur when the Sun moves from one to another zodiac. For simplicity, the name was later shortened to Songkran.
