Two husband and wife traders from Bangkok made merit at a Nakhon Pathom temple with 50,000 eggs at the weekend.

Panom Suantako, 60, and his wife Pusadee run a business supplying wood for wreaths to the florist trade. But they said that two years ago their business suffered a severe downturn, reported Thai Rath.

They promised that if economic conditions improved they would donate 50,000 eggs and holy cloth.

Things have really picked up recently and good to their promise the couple arrived at the temple with relatives and the eggs and 60 meters of cloth.

The story about the ritual – known as “gae bon” in Thai – was widely shared on social media, reported Thai Rath.
