Sriwittayapaknam School > English Homepage > Thailand Festivals > Christmas Day

Although the majority of people in Thailand are Buddhists, the Thai people love to take part in celebrations. Christmas is not a holiday here but the students from our school still celebrated it by singing, dancing and playing party games. This year for the first time we welcomed visitors from all around the world who watched our festivities on the live web cams on the internet throughout the day.

Early on Christmas morning, the students arriving at the school were welcomed by Santa Claus and some of his helpers. They handed out sweets to the students as they arrived.

Many of the students came to school with party hats and a big smile on their faces. In the middle of the playground was a giant Christmas tree which had been beautifully decorated.
