I like x-mas in Thailand 😉  

Had Christmas once on beach in the Maldives, was totally wierd eating lobster, just wasnt "Christmas" at all to me. As the years have rolled on it doesnt mean anything anymore. Its a time for you

I love the beach, dont get me wrong. but christmas day in the beaming hot sun just doesnt feel right, does it?   If I had one wish every year it would to be transported back to blighty

I know I have had one Christmas in Thailand.Maybe 2.The one I won’t forget.I was in Bangkok and knew I  wanted to go to Phuket sometime.

Christmas Eve I just got a taxi to don mueang airport without a ticket.Luckily I got a ticket from one of the flight offices there. What was surreal was inside airport they had Thai girls all dressed up in glittery dresses dancing on stage and singing Christmas carols.

Then Christmas Day afternoon in Patong eating chicken fried rice in restaurant thinking this is crazy.haha

I grew up in Australia, every Christmas time always hot/super hot,

I associate Christmas with hot weather, most Australian do. Never ever thought about Christmas in winter. 

I had 10 Christmases in London and not one white Christmas. It only snowed AFTER Christmas.

I always tried to work over the break as more money, but we used to get loads of cakes and biscuits etc in the tea room from patients, and the management put on a special spread for meals, plus we only operated on emergency cases so it was a quiet time. Only time in the year we had a tv in the tea room.

Happy days.

A couple of Aussie mates back in the UK would always claim that Christmas dinner on the beach was the way to go. my first Christmas in Thailand, I gave it a go, barbecued seafood on the beach.

 

Nah, not Christmas at all. Did have a nice day on the beach though.

Who doesn't exist and what does that have to do with a Xmas in the tropics?

The good weather places usually open gifts then kids want to go outside and enjoy them.  Go out for a family drive or the movies in the afternoon.  Then Xmas dinner.

Cold or snow staying inside with the heater on, no thanks.
