It was Children's Day in Thailand last 13 January. It is usually held every second Saturday of January and it's the time when it feels like Christmas for most children in Thailand. However due to uncertainty of events here. We opted not to celebrate. What should have been our second one became a camp inside the house. The decision was also based on the advise of the UN security regarding police warning of possible attacks.
This year's celebration is actually bigger--more fairs, more freebies but also more military equipment and armies in the guise of exhibits and as hosts. Fortunately, no untoward incidents were reported. While we (the kids) missed the air shows, the exhibits, the freebies, we decided to go out the following Sunday.
We missed the big event but we definitely hit it big time during that day--we watched Open Season! :D
