On this day Thai people celebrate the birthday of the worlds longest reigning King, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
This day which falls on the 5th December is a national holiday, and is also celebrated as Fathers Day, as the King is considered by Thai people to be the father of Thailand.
Thais take the time to pay their respects to their King. People will often decorate their houses with flags and banners, say prayers, and generally celebrate the greatness of their King, Rama IX of the Chakri Dynasty.
