English ProverbEvery dog has its day.
Wan Phra is a holy day, like a Sabbath in Judeo-Christian tradition. It is a time for visiting the temple and making merit. Sometimes things do not turn out well for a particular person, but who knows? Maybe next time round they will be the lucky one and the person enjoying this occasion may not be so lucky next time. And there will be many next times. We will all have our turn at success.
