Father's Day

Today, December 5th, is Father's Day in Thailand.  Father's Day is always celebrated on the King's Birthday, so at some point, it may no longer be on December 5th.  

While it can change, it has been the same day for most Thai people's lives.  The King has been on the throne for sixty-two years.  I suspect that when the King eventually passes, as all men must, that the Thai people may make December 5th the permanent Father's Day.  In the off chance I'm wrong and its not officially changed, I bet a lot of people continue to celebrate it on that day for years to come.
