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

I don’t drink, so on a personal level, I don’t really care.   However, I do see the irony of a ban on personal choices being enforced on a day celebrating enlightenment. 

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

I have a few personal bottles of JD whiskey in my room just to get me through days like this but wish i would of know sooner so could of stocked my fridge as well with beers...

Just a quick hint to all the newbies in Thailand. If you go to a side street 'mom and pop' shop, you will be able to purchase alcohol there. They might wrap the bottles in newspaper, but you can still buy it descreetly. Obviously not near tourist areas such as Khao Sarn road.

 

This is the norm. All propoganda. For most Thai's it just means that 7/11 isn't selling alcohol. So fear not my worried chums. Shop smart today, and tomorrow everything will be fine.

Er - Is the holiday not on Monday in lieu of today?

Like the ass that I am, I was assuming that there would be no alcohol sold on Monday.  I wrote on my calendar to stock up Sunday with wine for Game of Thrones Monday.  Do I dare make another assumption -- it will be sold Monday?

Personally, this has come as something of a relief. On a couple of Saturday evenings recently I have been sitting quietly in the corner of a local bar, engaged in an earnest discussion with one or more young ladies who serve there about the philosophical dichotomy between traditional Thai modesty and the brevity of their shorts, when there has been a blinding flash, a loud clap as if of thunder, and I have all of a sudden been struck drunk!

 

I wouldn't want it to happen again...

It is their country, so they see this as right ,,, let em be 

The law is not stopping you from drinking just no sales, & if you are that dependent on it 

should have stocked up before midnight last night

Complete and utter Buffalo shit.

If you live in the bush life goes on there are no bans.

I have been drinking beer all afternoon today.

If you live in a big city then maybe you can't. 

Your choice.

You can buy booze on Monday.

Not sure that giving people a holiday is "opressing" them?

 

It allows them to recover from the hangover .

Your Thai must be a lot more fluent than mine, and I am gobsmacked by the revelation you could discuss this intelligently with the ladies in question. I would have normally expected their contribution to the conversation to consist of giggling behind hands.
