Children's Day - Thailand

Thailand celebrates its children's day(Wan dek) on second Saturday in the month of January since 1955.  It is celebrated to create awareness about children's roles and responsibilities in the future of the country.

Each year it is celebrated with unique theme and slogan.

On this day, His majesty and Prime minister deliver speeches to the children of  Thailand.

On this day, children are allowed to visit, Government offices, Parliament, Military offices and other private and public institutions.  Almost all fun activities in amusement parks, game zones are free for the children on this day.

In 2013 Thailand  commemorated this event with a long sized stamp with cartoon characters wearing the 10 Asean countries (Brunei, cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam) national costume. 

I am very thankful to Pinthip for sending this stamp on card.
