Thai Kingís Birthday

His Majesty
King Bhumibol Adulyadej or Rama IX, is the constitutional monarch of Thailand. Longest serving monarch in history, he ascended to throne on 9 June, 1946. He was born on December 5, 1927, to Prince and Princess Mahidol of Songkhla. He is the ninth king of the Chakri Dynasty.

Kingís Birthday has increasingly become a day of nationwide tribute to the man who is the most influential figure in modern Thai history. Most Thais have never known another sovereign. Although he is a constitutional king with no formal political role, his presence has become synonymous to Thailand's stability. He has successfully uprisings and military coups and has reigned through scores of governments, democratic and dictatorial. He has been on the throne for six long decades. During this period, he took an active role in rural development and is respected for his dedication to helping the country's poor.

The Celebrations
Fatherís Day is observed in Thailand with high regard. All homes, parks and public buildings are decorated with flags and lights, predominantly of yellow color, which is the royal colour. Yellow colour symbolises devotion to the world's longest reigning monarch. People everywhere wear yellow -- from supermarket cashiers and morning joggers to business people. Kingís residence is bedecked with thousands of flowers and pageantry is something to watch.

In Pattaya, religious ceremonies dedicated to the King are held. Residents pray to Almighty for their beloved King's good health and happiness. While meeting each other, people express their joy and regard for the king. His birthday is all festivities, prayers and an effort by the people to wear yellow everyday.
