Heet 12, Month 10, september 12th, Isaan Traditions
Duan Sib or tenth month (September) is the month for celebrating Boon Khao Saak and the receiving of sermons. Villagers will make offerings of food and meals to Monks. After receiving sermons and merit makings, the villagers will hang offerings of food on tree branches, bushes and under trees to provide final offerings of food to wandering spirits. The ritual is in belief of providing food to deceased relatives that were released during Duan Gao and to send the wandering spirits that it is time to go back to the spirit world.
