Happy Birthday to the King

Today, December 5th. is the King’s 82nd birthday. Sadly he is still in hospital and will not be making his customary speech to the Thai people. I wish him well.

Here are some images that I scanned from greetings cards on sale in Bangkok.

December 5th is also celebrated as Father’s Day. Thai people thank their fathers for taking care of them. There’s even a TV show on the preceeding days that dramatizes relationships with fathers.
