On this, the beginning of the traditional Thai New Year, it is my great pleasure to wish the people of the Kingdom of Thailand a Happy Songkhran holiday. The United States and Thailand have shared a special friendship for over 175 years. As you celebrate this three-day festival, I offer you the best wishes of all Americans that you and your families may have a joyous and peaceful Songkhran.
