      --The odd thing is they just maintain a vegetarian diet during those ritual days. So much easier to be a vegetarian full-time; and not spear yourself.

        Tongue slashing in Phuket
        In Thailand, this festival is called Tesagan Gin Je เทศกาลกินเจ, the Vegetarian Festival. It is celebrated throughout the entire country, but the festivities are at their height in Phuket, where about 35% of the population is Thai Chinese. It attracts crowds of spectators because of many of the unusual religious rituals that are performed.
