Today is Mother’s Day in Thailand, the date fixed to coincide with the Queen’s birthday. Queen Sirikit is considered to be the mother of the nation just as the king is seen as the father of the nation. Queen Sirikit is 75-years-old and there have been nationwide events to mark the day with candle-lighting ceremonies and firework displays. As the date falls on a Sunday this year, tomorrow (Monday 13th) is a public holiday here.
