'Widow's ghost' blamed for mysterious deaths

Villagers in tambon Dong Yai in Phimai district of this northeastern province have hung a red shirt in front of their houses, believing that it can drive away the ghost of a widow. A local medium said the ghost is responsible for the deaths of two men in the village.

Lamom Sermphimai, 62, a female resident of Ban Sala, said the villagers have hung a red shirt in front of their houses to ward off the ghost after two male villagers died mysteriously in their sleep over the past week.

The villagers went to see a medium, who then held a rite at a village shrine to invite spirits to explain the causes, Mrs Lamom said.

Through the medium, the spirits said it was the ghost of a widow who wanted to take the lives of four men in the village, Mrs Lanom continued. Since two died already, two more would soon follow.

Fearing that the widow's ghost would take the life of their family members, the villagers have hung a red shirt in front of their houses in hopes that it would drive away the ghost.

Some of the villages have even attached a note to the red shirt, read: "There are no men in this house, but only cats and dogs."

According to Mrs Lamom, no other men in the village have died in their sleep since the red shirts were hung in front of the houses - apparently proving that they had worked.

The Spirits of Lai Thai
I know it must seem a bizarre story to non Thai people, but the lai thai spirits most believe in and theres no problem in hanging a red shirt on the tree outside your home, if it makes you feel safer, didn't you guys, tell your kids behave or santa will bring you nothing. hang a stocking at the bottom of your bed waiting for santa to come down the chimney, how big is santa and how wide was your chimney, so there you go.

but with modern health technologies the deaths might prove other than the spirits,as SUNDS (Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome) can occur if you have a cardiac weakness. it is said that the Hmong descent,who may be more susceptible.

most thais will believe it's the spirits,an unhappy spirit can cause major problems,how many spirits are there,one for every occasion,the rice spirit giving a good harvest,some believe the spirits live in the trees, rivers and even in your own home,they all have a purpose to serve and cannot get involved in another spirit’s domain.

so don't forget your daily offerings to the spirit house that's the one that should keep your home safe.
Why shouldn't people have a belief we all must beleive in something or even someone. sleep tight. :)
ignorance does not help your post one bit but it probably says an awful lot about you.

santa, yes we were told a lot of what they call white lies when we were a kid, white lies are they supposed to be ok then or were they used by our parents to get us to do things they wanted. we believed them because we thought they knew better. kids ask a lot of questions and sometimes it’s just easier to lie.
eating carrots will help you see in the dark, well they have got vitamin A.

but the cruelist lie is go to sleep or the boogey man will get yer. some adults are still scared of the dark because of the things they were told as a kid.

where do babies come from, err the stork brings them

When I was your age, children knew to respect their parents. We didn’t give anyone any lip. We owned up to our responsibilities. We took advantage of our opportunities. We knew what was what. Kids these days have gotten everything all messed up. they don't even know stork from butter
