Thailand celebrates Mother’s Day on the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit who was born on 12th August 1932.
The Royal Coast Review joins the people of Thailand in wishing Her Majesty a long and happy life.
As Her Majesty the Queen’s birthday was on a Friday, people will be dressed in light blue and Her Majesty The Queen’s personal flag (light blue flag with a Royal Cypher and the Great Crown of Victory) will be flown to celebrate Mother’s day in Thailand.
Traditionally children offer their mother jasmine flowers which symbolises motherhood. It is very common that schools host a Mother’s Day ceremony. Students spend weeks practising for this event.
There are no scheduled holidays in Thailand during September but two in October; 13 October, King Bhumibol Adulyadej Memorial Day and 23 October, King Chulalongkorn Day.
