  Wan Chaleum Phra Chonma Phansa

 

Thailand

On the King's 80th birthday in 2007, the annual fireworks in Bangkok (fig.) included some personalized shapes, including this number eighty (fig.). Wan Chaleum Phra Chonma Phansa is celebrated annually on December 5th.

 

On this day, Thai people also tend to wear yellow shirts in honour of the King, who was born on a Monday, which corresponds to the colour yellow in the sih prajam wan system.
