Correct Answer: Making small boats
So why is this answer correct? : Loy Krathong, also known as “the festival of light,” originated in the ancient city of Sukhothai, Thailand. Small decorated boats called “krathongs” are sent down the river as an offering to Mae Khongka, the water goddess. These boats are usually made of banana leaves and flowers, and candles are placed on them, each with a prayer, memory, or wish attached.
