    King's Holidays to Remain.

    PRIME MINISTER Prayut Chan-o-cha said yesterday that the government would retain holidays related to His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, while the Cabinet approved activities for next Tuesday to express loyalty to the late monarch on the occasion of his 89th birthday on December 5.

    The calendar would have to be adjusted after the new reign commences, officials said, adding that the Royal Household Bureau would take care of the details.

    However, holidays linked to the late King Rama IX will remain, although with some name changes, because of His Majesty’s profound influence on Thailand, the PM said.

    Good. The Thai Consulate where I live hosts a big party for VIPs at one of the 5 star hotels on the King's Birthday. Lots of free grub and free drink. It's a nice pre-Christmas tradition. First party of the festive season. Seems a shame not to have it.

    That makes reasonable sense to honor HM King Bhumibol and not suspend any observations of his birthday - still considering it Father's day.

    His long reign and influence matches his Grandfather, King Chulalongkorn, in which we still celebrate a Chulalongkorn Day in October.
