Merry Christmas Chiangmai

Merry Christmas from Chiangmai.
Holiday travelers are pouring into Chiangmai (well on the beaten track) and although Thais do not necessarily celebrate Christmas, there are decorations, Christmas trees, and Santa hats everywhere.
We spent Christmas dinner with some friends of ours from Sweden, who apparently travel to Chiangmai as frequently as we do. Yes, Steaks and French Fries, but not real "French Fries".

What's Christmas without carols.
Yes indeed. Although Thailand is predominately a Buddhist country, there are, especially here in Chiangmai, a number of private Christian schools.
