Loi Krathong is an annual festival in Thailand.
On the night of the 16th of November, Thai's all around the country make elaborate floats, usually made from banana leaves, decorated with flowers, candles and sparklers. The candles and sparklers are lit and then the whole decoration is floated down river. Some Thais will even attach some of their hair or finger nail, so as to float aware their troubles.

I received my first ever Flu jab yesterday, free, courtesy of the NHS. Last year I had a bad case of Flu, and subsequently a severe chest infection. This left me asthmatic, hence my entitlement to a free NHS Flu inoculation. Hopefully, I won't suffer to the extent that I did last winter.
