It’s Christmas …….

Thursday 25 December 2008

Because most Thais are Buddhist, normally Thai people look at the Christmas as a beginning of the New Year celebration.


No matter what religion you are, it’s not important. It’s Christmas. It’s New Year. It’s a new start. It’s time to say farewell for the bad thing in 2008. It’s time for every people in the world who share its joy. Let’s our heart of goodwill overcome all barrier that tear us apart.

We are the same. We are human. We can share the blessing to each other. That’s the way to make a better world. Forgive people who did bad thing to you. Wish them well. This is the only way to stop all revenge.

Hope you get a present you are expected to. Merry Christmas!!!
