BANGKOK, 5 October 2013 (NNT) – Many people in Thailand, especially Thais of Chinese origin, are joining the celebration of the Vegetarian Festival which is being held until October 13.

In observing the Vegetarian Festival, they consume meat-free meals and refrain from taking some vegetables with a strong smell. They also dress in white and pay homage to gods in Chinese shrines. In addition, during this period, they will try to purify their minds, conduct good deeds, and make merit.

The symbol for the Vegetarian Festival is a small yellow flag placed at vegetarian food stalls. Several restaurants also include vegetarian dishes on their menu for this festival.
