PHUKET: Temples are being asked to ensure that ‘new normal’ health guidelines will be observed for the Asarnha Bucha and Khao Pansa Budhhist holidays this coming weekend (July 4-5).

 

All visitors to temples must wear face masks and be provided hand sanitiser. They must also observe social distancing and large gatherings must be managed in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, explained Saroj Kansirilasin, Director of the Secretariat of the National Buddhism Office.

 

The auspicious Buddhist holidays Asarnha Bucha Day and Khao Phansa (Buddhist Lent), also called “Vassa”, will be observed Saturday and Sunday (July 4-5), respectively.

They can't see you drinking in your condo. At least...NOT YET.

Why is the subject headline  - as is the norm on here - focusing on alcohol, and not the actual revered Buddhist holiday.  That's a rhetorical question, BTW.

I concur- its not as if people don't see it coming every year. Always cues angst though. 🙃
