Santa Claus Is Coming to Thai Town

December 25, 2014
   Interesting how pervasive American culture is around the world. Here we are in the Palmer Hotel in downtown Bangkok, Thailand and in comes a Thai choir who lined up in front of the coffee machine and belted out letter perfect Christmas carols in impeccable English:

The Thai Choir Sings Christmas Carols

   Then we heard a heartly Ho Ho Chin Min and it was Thai Santa and his lovely helper who came into the buffet complex and gifted all the good little boys and girls a Christmas gift (I got a spring flower, Kathy got nada).

   We're off to the north country today.

"He's checking his list, he's checking it twice, he's going to find out if you were naughty and nice. . ." 
—The Thai Choir getting the words right but the syntax slightly off
