Spirits doing the laundry?

Traveling in Thailand

While riding from Na Noi to Khun Sathan National Park I saw along the road suddenly between the trees a lot of cloths hanging. And of course a spirit house. Are spirits doing the laundry? It is a mystery to me but I assume it will have something to do with Thai animisme. And no, those spirit houses are not Buddhism. Thai people go to the spirit houses to "pray", to ask for something like a baby, health, lottery numbers. And if they did get what they did ask for they will give something to the spirits. Like cloths. So this spirit houses must be very "good" because there were many cloths hanging. For more information about Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan.
