"I-I-I watched him for fifteen years, sitting in a room, staring at a wall; not seeing the wall, looking past the wall; looking at this night, inhumanly patient, waiting for some secret, silent alarm to trigger him off. Death has come to your little town, Sheriff. Now, you can either ignore it, or you can help me to stop it." - Dr. Sam Loomis. Halloween 1978

PHI TA KHON - THE GHOST FESTIVAL

ผีตาโขน
These are ghost costumes on display at Loie airport in Northeast Thailand. They are worn during the colourful Phi Ta Khon festival (Ghost festival). Ghosts and spirits play a large part in traditional Thai culture and beliefs. The original beliefs of the ancient Thai people, before Buddhism even came along, was Animism.
Animism and animist beliefs is the belief in spirits. Spirits can inhabit trees and land and that's why every building in Thailand has a spirit house where offerings are made to appease these spirits.
In the Northeast of Thailand, spirit worship is taken to new levels with the Phi Ta Khon festival (Ghost festival). You can learn more about the Ghost Festival here:

A couple of things to note: displaying huge phallus’ is part of the festival and the costume hats are made from baskets used to steam rice.

Intertwined with the Ghost festival is the Rocket festival and the legend of the Toad king. You can learn more about the Rocket festival here:
