If you are wondering why we are wearing yellow - I'll explain.....
In Thailand each day of the week is associated with a colour and traditionally people would wear items of clothing according to the colour of the day.
- Monday is Yellow
- Tuesday is Pink
- Wednesday is Green
- Thursday is Orange
- Friday is Blue
- Saturday is Purple
- Sunday is Red
(Marissa, our downstairs neighbour, claims that this system is great cause she always knows what day it is......we keep threatening to go into her flat and swap her shirts around!!!)
The King was born on Monday 5th of December 1927 so to show their love for their King the Thai people always wear yellow on a Monday.
So now you know.....
I'd better go cause it would be nice to get a glimpse of him
