Merry Christmas from Bangkok! Have a wonderful time with family and please stuff your face with Christmas cookies for me. I’ve been seeing these little stuffed Christmas trees around and they’re pretty cute. It almost seems a little silly and futile, trying to make Christmastime in Bangkok like it’s Christmastime in central Illinois. Nevertheless, I’m singing “Step into Christmas” in the elevator (one of my favorites!) and finding fun things to do in Bangkok for Christmastime. This weekend, I’m planning on going to a restaurant owned and operated by the North Korean government, going to watch the Chulalongkorn University band play Christmas songs, going to a Christmas Eve service, buying myself a huge present – a gift that will keep on giving, and I’m even going on a Christmas jazz buffet nighttime cruise down the Chao Phraya River. I figure I have to keep things exciting and different.
Here are a few of my favorite Christmas things anyway.
Now go enjoy yourselves and your family!
