Beach in Thailand
Christmas in Thailand is the time when shopping malls are decorated, Christmas songs are heard everywhere, and Santa comes to town.
In such an atmosphere, it is very difficult to believe that Thailand is a Buddhist country. But since the people in this country are very friendly and hospitable, they do not need a big reason for celebration and fun. Holidays such as Valentine's Day and Halloween are also celebrated noisily and cheerfully.

They start to decorate the city from the end of November, especially shopping centers and hotels. For Thais, a decorated Christmas tree can last 12 days, but some keep it even longer. In Thailand, New Years and Christmas are one long-term event. Many people also combine it with the Chinese New Year, which is celebrated in April.
It should be noted that not every family celebrates Christmas. Thais do not go to church, do not sing carols. But if there are small children in the family, then Christmas is celebrated. They do this in order to make the kids happy: give gifts, arrange a Christmas dinner. Parents can even take their kids to Bangkok to see the tree and take a picture with it.
Christmas in Thailand is a normal working day, but in kindergartens and schools matinees are held, gifts are given, they lead round dances, they tell stories about the birth of Jesus. Christmas here is also an excuse to meet the family at the Christmas table.
