Christmas in July

Have a Holly Jolly...Buddha? For someone who's just arrived in Thailand, it might seem strange to see all the Christmas garlands and other seasonal trimmings used as decorations all year long, but if you've spent some time here like me, you barely notice it after a while. So, never mind that blinking Christmas tree in the corner of the mom and pop restaurant in July or the glittery banner wishing you a "Happy New Year!" in a public bus in summer. Be Merry and Jolly all year long!
