  Trut Jihn

 

Thailand

During Thetsakahn Trut Jihn, i.e. Chinese New Year, people traditionally wear red. On the T-shirt here, the Chinese character foo (fig.), which stands for blessing, good luck and happiness, is printed in gold.

 

During this annual festival, the young also buy gold (in Bangkok Thai gold) to give to senior relatives.
