Cutural Thai Vocab:
พิธีรดน้ำสังข์ Pií-tii ród-náam-sǎng (Shell Ceremony)
is part of the procedure for a traditional Thai wedding is that the couple kneels on a small pedestal with clasped hands. They would have garlands around their necks and a village elder would say a few words. Each guest would then arrive and pour holy water out of a shell onto their hands and saying a few words. They also hand the couple an envelope filled with money and the couple would reciprocate by handing them a small wedding memento. This lasts for a few hours.
