Happy Birthday to the Queen

Today is Her Majesty’s 72nd Birthday Anniversary. It is also Mother’s day in Thailand. That’s not a mere “Hallmark Holiday” as in other countries. It is the day when all children should honour their mothers. Many people will return home to give gifts and show respect to their mother on this day. That is why it is a national holiday in Thailand.

The King’s Birthday in December is similarly celebrated as Father’s Day.

Here is a link to more information on Her Majesty from the Public Relations Department of the Royal Thai Government.
