Pixel Bug Weekend: Father’s day Celebration

Photobucket
As I posted here,  Father’s day is celebrated here in Thailand on the 5th of December as it is their King’s birthday. The celebration will last for a week. Yesterday, we went to Ma Maison- a Bakery and a Coffee House to treat the daddy of the house.
Today at church, we also have a short program for the fathers.
a Thai interpretative dance

our minister giving honor to the king by bowing
 we light candles and sing a special song for the king
 
all fathers were called out to be prayed for and be given recognition
 
our Hyzyd offered a flower to his dad
 
my brother, a newly dad received a flower from his 1 month old daughter
 
Why yellow flowers? Yellow is the King’s birth color because yellow is the color of a Monday birth according to traditional Thai beliefs. So every Monday throughout the year most Thais wear a special yellow shirt to honor the King.
