Fortunately not. My wife saw the first shop putting up decorations a few days ago and toold me how sad to was to be doing to this early.
My wife loves Christmas but she's a bit embarrassed by the number of presents that she gets despite telling everybody that she doesn’t want any. We have a very big family. Part of her upbringing I guess. They don't celebrate Christmas in Thailand as such but the hotel she used to work in in Saraburin had a large number of ferang guests. She was used to putting a tree up for them etc. Before she came here the only presents she'd had in her life were where all the staff at the hotel bought a present and pooled them and they each received one.
