The Phuket vegetarian festival 2021 also known as the Nine Emperor Gods Festival is scheduled to be celebrated from today, October 5 to 15, although things may have to be changed this year mainly because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Phuket vegetarian festival is a yearly colorful event observed on the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar, which traditionally lands on the months of September or October. It celebrates the Chinese new year’s faith that abstinence from meat and different stimulants will help them achieve good health and peace of mind.
Since the coronavirus disease 2019 started last 2019, many celebrations and events throughout the world had been postponed mainly to stop the spread of the viral disease and to protect all people within each country.
The most famous cancellation of a huge celebration was when China canceled the celebration of the Lunar New Year (Chinese New Year) last 2020 when the Covid-19 outbreak is going beyond control where people are dying on the streets of Wuhan.
In Bangkok, the vegetarian festival 2021 or the Phuket vegetarian festival 2021 (as it is typically celebrated in Phuket) had been canceled due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Although the Phuket vegetarian festival 2021 is expected to still be observed this year in Phuket Province, the celebration may have to be attached with modifications as people are always mandated to follow the Covdi-19’s safety measures.
