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.

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.
