The terms are “birthday, entering a new house, passing an examination, getting a better job, getting a promotion, getting married, new year’s eve”.
Hmm, are you stretching your grey cells to find the answer to the above question. Hopefully not, cause the answer is quite simple “PARTY”.

Full Moon Party, Koh Phangan, Thailand
Once upon a time, around the year 1987 a group of tourists while lazing around on a beach in Koh-Phangan discussed an idea. They were all looking up at the stars and the beautiful moon-lit sky. The Moon at this place was one of the most amazing sights they had ever seen, never before had they seen a moon so beautiful. “Why not have a party here, so that many more people can enjoy this sight and celebrate the beauty of god’s creation“, said one of them. Sure let’s organize a Full Moon Party, said the others in unison.
From that day onwards full-moon nights have never been the same for this island in thailand. Every full-moon night the crescent shaped beach of Haad Rin on this island turns into an all-night beach party where 1000’s of people from across the world gather together and enjoy the splendid beauty of the night. One can enjoy various types of alcohol, cocktails and local delicacies apart from extravagant displays of fireworks, fire-eaters, jugglers and much more.
