Water celebrations around the world
People often recognize that water is vital for physical well-being, but it’s true for human emotional and spiritual well-being, too. Water is fundamental to life, and across the globe, people revel in it. Every person on earth needs water to live, and when we celebrate this need fulfilled, water brings us together. Some praise it through holy rituals, while others honor it through jubilant festivals.
Since the ancient era, people have exalted water. The Talmud, the first book of law in Judaism written nearly 2000 years ago, tells of a ritual in which rabbis poured water from the pool of Siloah over the temple altar. The text declares “one who had never witnessed the Rejoicing at the Place of the Water Drawing had never seen true joy in his life.”
Around the same time, pagan believers from Armenia began honoring Astghik, the goddess of water, love, and fertility, through the festival of Vartavar. Today the festival endures on a hot summer day every year, as people throw buckets of water on one another in the modern Vartavar. (Note: strangers included!)
In Thailand, centuries of Buddhist tradition have created the great public soakings of the Songkran Water Festival. Every year in April, people celebrate the traditional Thai New Year as a time of purification. They slowly pour scented water over statues of the Buddha. Then they cleanse one another’s shoulders, as well as the hands of community elders, with water.
The water symbolizes washing away misfortune and beginning a fresh new year. The festival starts gently, but after a few days, it becomes boisterous as celebrants hit the streets with water guns, balloons and buckets. Then, the festival becomes the world’s largest water fight.
Throughout history and around the world, people have celebrated water for making life–in its countless forms–possible. Water soothes the mind, whether we watch ocean waves roll in or quench our thirst on a hot summer day.

1Coway air purifiers has been proven to trap dust, pollen, dander, viruses and bacteria in the air based on KCL (Korea Conformity Laboratories) testing.They have been tested in a 30㎥ size chamber according to the Korea Air Cleaning Association standard (SPS-KACA 002-132:2022 Modified) to measure the 0.01㎛ size of particle removal rate. It was tested on maximum airflow speed in normal room temperature and humidity conditions. The performance may vary in the actual living environment of customers.

3Aerosol test conducted in a Biosafety level 3 laboratory with two Coway air purifier models, Coway Airmega 250 and 400 for removal of SARS-CoV-2 Aerosol by US based MRI Global, a not-for-profit laboratory and partner of US Department of Defense. The test was conducted in a 13.1ft3 chamber. Virus was aerosolized for 15 minutes and the product was turned on high for 2 minutes. Result showed each product effectively removed over 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 in 2 minutes. This is a result from a laboratory experiment condition and result may vary in different conditions. This result does not imply it kills SARS-CoV-2 or prevents the transmission of Covid-19. Coway Airmega 250S and 400S are identical to the tested models and has equal performance with an additional mobile connectivity function.
4The concentration of ammonia, acetaldehyde and acetic acid were proven to be removed within 30 minutes by FCG Research Institute, Inc. Human Life Science Lab. It is not a demonstration result in the actual use space. Not all odors and gases may be supported. → Tested with Coway Airmega 150, 160, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 400, 400S
5The coverage area of the air purifier is based on an area where the air cleaner can make two air changes per hour (ACPH). An air change per hour translates to how many times an air purifier can clean an area, assuming the height of a ceiling to be 8 ft, in one hour. Therefore ** means two air changes per hour means that the cleaner can clean the area once every 30 minutes and * means air changes per hour means that the air purifier can clean the area once every 60 minutes.
