Holding the sai sin but there’s time for the monk in the background to take a photo. He may be a family family member, the family do have relatives in this wat.

The photo below is of a village elder tying the sai sin around the wrists of the family.

Sprinkling holy water over all those present. Heads bowed and hands in a very respectful wai.

Once the solemn part is over, seems okay to text or play a game.

Some final pics later this week. Happy New Year to everyone. Some of the traditions of Thailand are covered in my books, Thailand Take Two and A Thailand Diary; both available on Apple, Nook, Amazon, etc. All the popular eBook retailers.
