Children's day in Thailand

Children's day in Thailand

Although officially children's day is not until tomorrow in Thailand, pretty much all schools around the country celebrated the event today.
It's a fairly big deal around the country and various events are being organized like the Sattahip Sea tour on HTMS Chakri Naruebet for more than 1,000 children and families today.

The official slogan for this years Children day

Each child is supposed to bring a gift to school and the gifts are being mixed up all together and now each child will receive a gift from 'the pool' of gifts. Our daughter got candies, which unfortunately was the majority of gifts around at her school. Interesting in this regards to read about a warning against snack binge consumption.

Thai Airways even has a special child's menu available for 3 days.

The show is about to start at our son's school

It was a very busy day at our son's pre-school, with lots of parents watching their children perform in a dance with their classmates.
Monday the children are off since that will be Teacher day. How convenient!
