But that doesn't mean that Bangkok isn't getting into the Christmas spirit. Nay! The malls are decked with boughs of holly, twenty foot firs and all the consumer goods you could dream of. Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time, dancing and prancing in Siam Square, in the frosty air (conditioning).
But you know, it's nice to see that Thailand hasn't fallen prey to the Western consumer-driven aspect of it all...
With that said, Thailand is still going to find a way to put their stamp on the whole affair.
After all, it just wouldn't be A Very Thai Christmas without somebody dressing as sexy Mrs. Claus.
Merry Christmas! Love, Thailand.
