Staff at Alsco Thailand worshipped at the Spirit House earlier this year. Thais believe that every place has its own ancestor or is pre-owned by someone who has passed away but still looks after that place.
They pay their respects to that ancestor in order that they will be protected and prosper.
The spirit house becomes a focal point to cultivate a harmonious relationship with nature; offerings are made in exchange for abundance, protection and creative potential. The ceremony took place on 23 February, considered a good day on the Lunar calendar.

Thailand culture is so different to Australia that you cannot even begin to compare it. It is extremely beautiful.
