    Re: Christmas in thailand

    Christmas 2004 I spent in Thailand. We went to DreamWorld on Christmas Day mainly because of the Snow Town as Ubonwan had never seen snow before. In the evening we met up with another couple, him British/Irish and she Thai and is tradditional for Christmas ate far too much at a street restaurant in the Soi behind our hotel in Banglamphu just of Samsen Road.

    Superb inspirational post Sparky. I have spent the last 15 or so Christmases in Thailand but in truth have always felt something missing. This year I will try to adapt your idea and do something similar.

    Re: Christmas in thailand

    I loved that big christmas tree they put in MBK square last year, huge and blue lights. Maybe I'll catch it again this year if I'm there. Interesting how many 'non traditional' celebrations seem to catch on in so many parts of the world, especially in the greater metropolitan areas.

    Re: Christmas in thailand

    we will be working at Christmas (midterm tests week), but I don't mind. the best way to spend Christmas is to be with the ones you love, and that happens to be my students. I could never really make sense of Christmas back home. I'm ok with all the decorations etc, I just hate "jingle bells" because it is always on. even in the bank.

    One year my sister sent a small tree, with small ornaments and small garland...fake snow even. Here is a picture of my Thai mom trimming her first tree!

    that's really small
    I went shopping the other day, of course BigC is now full of trees of all sizes. there are even bright pink ones.


    in your country, do you usually have real trees or plastic ones?
