Thailand Celebrates King Birthday, Da...

Thailand marked the birthday of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the world's longest-reigning monarch, on December 5, 2016 by giving alms and pray for the King at the hospital where he was admitted and his health is closely watched. The day is also observed as Thailand’s National Day and National Father’s Day.

Thai people celebrate this auspicious occasion on a grand scale to show gratitude to their beloved King, who is “more than a monarch”  for many. In Thailand, the monarch is seen as a symbol of the nation and its continuity, and for this reason he is expected to be above politics and so a representative of all the people in the state. Celebrations have taken place also at Sanam Luang, just beside the Grand Palace and the Emerald Buddha temple in the Thai capital. King Bhumibol, who turns 88, was last seen in public on September 1, and officials say he will not be making a public appearance on his birthday.
