    spirit of friendliness...

    Does this "spirit" mean "attitude" or "MIND/FEELINGS/CHARACTER"?

    ex)...Songkran is a time for special fun, too. People throw water on anyone who walks down the street or past their home. They use buckets of water, water pistols, water hoses, and water-filled balloons. Everyone gets wet, but it is all in a spirit of friendliness...

    Attitude. I'm not sure what the others might mean - but they would make at best uncomfortable collocations.
