Christmas in a Buddhist country



We used to feel the cold breeze of Christmas starting early November but climate has really changed so we're still waiting for the chilly air at this Christmas season to come soon. Anyway, it's good to see Christmas symbols around, at least, as there's no Christmas celebration or holiday here in Thailand except for New Year.
About 95% of Thailand population are Buddhists. But even if Thailand is a Buddhist country, we can feel the Christmas atmosphere by the fabulous Christmas decors around like these poinsettia plants at the parks and establishments anywhere. Poinsettia is a tropical plant with bright RED leaves that look like flowers and it blooms on Christmas season.Some people call it Christmas plant.

This is a towering Christmas tree (about 3 floors in height) at Zen and Central World, downtown Bangkok. It looks rather dull at daytime, especially without a touch of red, the dominant color for Christmas (maybe not yet completed). As it's not yet December, Christmas tree is still rare but next month, we can see spectacular well-decorated Christmas trees everywhere in Thailand.
