A Thailand Christmas Tradition

Just a quick update:  I went walking around Chiang Mai tonight and found the night bazaar.  It seems that it’s a Thai Christmas tradition to take your high school’s band out to the market to play Christmas carols – I saw two separate bands doing it!  Most Thais are Buddhist, so I can only assume that they’re doing it for the tourists, but it brought a big smile to my face this evening.  Chistmas carols always get me, despite the fact that I’m Jewish.  I took a couple videos of the horribly off-key tunes. 🙂

Merry Christmas!
