    Looking forward to seeing some more photos of the ceremony.

    How have you explained this to your children and do they understand it just for good luck and a fun day for the family

    Food being prepared for the spirits in the garden. The dogs'll eat that later.



    The Sin Sot being prepared. I have to pay a dowery for my own daughter to marry my son.



    Missus put together 19,999 Baht and 9 Baht gold. Supposed to be lucky numbers.



    The man preparing the alter. He was a big dude for a Thai.

    Family shot.



    The ceremony starts. My MiL on the left. It was on her insistence that the ceremony took place.



    The MiL showing the sin sot.




    The spectators.



    The happy couple with their mother.



    Just about the end now. Water is poured over the couples hands.



    All finished now.



    Girls posing.



    And the starving audience retire to the communal table, the floor.



    Thanks for viewing.

    The twins have always known that this ceremony would take place. I'm not sure they're of an age where they can fully understand the tradition behind it.

    She has her moments. She actually looks better with the light out. I kid you not.

    Filipinos do some weird stuff as well, but I've never heard of this one before, despite having lived in LOS for some years, about 1/2 of it in the province.

    Belief the twins were lovers in a previous life. Purely a ceremonial thing intended to bring good luck to the kids and the family.

    Odd to us but then again lot's of things are in the LoS.

    As Norton correctly said. It's believed the twins were boyfriend/girlfriend in a previous life but never married. They were then reincarnated as twins boy/girl. So to make sure they never get separated again they are (village ceremony) wed as children.

    I had never heard of this tradition either. Thanks for sharing family photos, Pragmatic. They're lovely kids; you should be very happy and proud.

    My wife has a twin nephew and niece who went through this ceremony. She says the ceremony will be repeated again when they are 14 yo.
