Is tomorrow, 5 Dec, a big/holy holiday in CM?

Recommended Posts

My calendar indicates some kind of event Tuesday; the notice all in Thai and colored pink.  Do i need to get to TOPS at KSK to buy me beer tonight?

The last King. Does it change with the new King's birthday?

My Thai wife does not know....Unknown.....

Mother's day might also be affected...

Possibly a change after the Royal Coronation ceremony?

Nobody seems to know right now....

I believe that the issue was so sensitive that the government decided a few months ago to keep Father's Day on 05/12 for the time being.

Yes. I believe schools decided at the very last minute to close that day to observe the birthday. Nobody knew what was going on as the decision wasn't made until around 15:30 the day before. It was reported on the news as parents were confused.

No mandatory ban on the sale of alcohol but a few places might decide to pay respect by not selling it!

Been told by Thai friend who owns a bar, that this will not be a holiday etc since the King has now passed away. Also, as of yet, there is no birthday holiday for the new king yet as he is still not officially the King.
