Christmas in Buddhist Land

December is when Thailand almost does not look like a Buddhist country especially in commercial areas. You just have to go out and see how business works with a Christian tradition.

This is a tree inside Central Mall, Bangna

Sky rail tracks on the right and Siam Paragon on the left. Christmas arches in the middle are abuzz with picture-taking.

Inside Siam Paragon. That star rubs shoulders with Emporio Armani.

All ready for the Countdown. Merry Christmas from Bangkok!

My World Tuesday is brought to you by Klaus and the My World Team Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy, Sylvia

It is indeed a beautiful post and Christmas seems to flourish everywhere and perhaps for many reasons, but it is still beautiful! Have a wonderful week, Hazel!

Wonderful Christmas decorations. Very colorful.

Hazel said...

Sylvia, you're right on the beauty bit. I'm happy it's there no matter what the purpose is. It's what I love about the season.

Rajesh, indeed they are.
