According the the Thai public holiday list publication, Visaka Bucha day is Monday 20th. Banks closed. 

The religious holiday is today, May 18th. As it falls on a Saturday, it is observed (offices and banks closed) on Monday. Alcohol ban only today.

Buddha would’ve let people decide for themselves; this is just another S.E. Asian country that has cnts in uniforms oppressing people.

I will always strictly abide by the laws and cultural ways of any host country I visit,but as you say knowing the ways of Buddhists open gentle ways they would prefer to do it your way, seeing as this country relies heavily on tourism I would have thought it would be more sensible to  let the locals do it their way for them, and allow a bit of slack for tourists, ah well no buying alcohol for me, good job I always have a stock, it says 'selling alcohol',  what about drinking alcohol ? better not drink for this day, just to be sure. (cough)

So what, for anyone needs to drink alcohol today the solution was to buy what they needed yesterday. 

As guests in this country we have to accept the laws and regulations they have here. Simple 

Dont worry, plenty of places to buy despite what the government says,

Oh dear, another opportunity for the holier than thou to class all that want a drink as alcoholics and make a sarcastic remark.

True, they just cannot resist a miserable dig.

Years ago I began keeping 4, 1 liter bottles of vodka in the pantry for situations just like this. Grey Goose no less 😉

Poor chain stores, having to obey the law and all that... whatever next.

Alcohol's available. I mean, if you're one of the fraction who don't know where to get such banned items on such days, then making a plan shouldn't be too difficult - I mean, you planned to come to Thailand and managed to make it here on-time (I assume).  It's not like they've never had a Buddha Day in Thailand before, right?

the old coffee cup trick will work and the mum and pop shop will be ok to buy beer on any day along with a supply of local

It used to be a teapot with a cup and saucer. Apparently fooled everyone.

A bit of a hit in the ares pocket for the likes of bars etc... but for the rest of the population it'll be a cold one or three out of the fridge.

Great post UNTIL u had go on with that last sentence. Nobody has ever said here, on any such thread, that they just couldn't survive without alcohol for a day. Or that they were gonna "go postal", keel over or commit harakiri. That is just something created by the booze adverse lot. Got a bone on for drink and drinkers for whatever reason. 

 

You made the point so well, then totally blinkered it up. 

I don't see how it was blinkered up.
