Why is that brain dead? Doesn't it make sense to do it over a scheduled holiday period to keep days lost to a minimum?

WHY NOT KEEP THEM POSTPONED....wil not make much difference if NOT have this stupid so called holiday.....

Roll em over to next year and make the Thai New Year 6 National holidays.

 

Split them to 3 either side of the weekend so people only need to use up 4 sick days to have, nowt wrong with 16 day holiday !!

Songkran always = drinking, yet bars cannot open. It is safe to throw water over each other and frollick in the streets shoulder to shoulder but bars are health hazards. I think it is quite clear Thailand wants bars shut for as long as possible. They have always secretly hated the bars as they feel it brings shame on their nation.

Send the Culture minister to a mental institution as soon as possible.

Stupid propose, are thai people celebrating that they are out of jobs, have no money and no water in the reservoirs.

I think one day will be enough. Everyone will be exhausted and sore throwing a bucket of water 1.8 meters all day long.

Will they open International borders so that Americans ,Russians and of course the Chinese can come and celebrate, sounds good fun then when they have gone home we can all go back into lockdown and watch phase 2 appear which will totally destroy any hope there was of Los escaping from this health and financial disaster, think very carefully and forget any pressure to knee jerk to please a few.

What makes you think there will be water throwing allowed?

 

And you do realize we are well into the rainy season by July, not as much fun as with blue skies overhead if it were to be allowed.

On the plus side there won't be so many farangs here. They are the biggest idiots, louts one could imagine, taking their usually passive aggression to full on active aggression
