Thailand observes Makha Bucha on February 10; first long weekend of the year

On February 10, 2020, Thailand is observing the Makha Bucha Holiday.

Makha Bucha Day is a Buddhist holiday celebrated in Thailand. It is based on the Buddhist Lunar Calendar and comes in February or March on the Gregorian Calendar. The celebration is held during the third lunar month of the year because Buddha is said to have delivered certain of his teachings at this time.

The actual Makha Bucha Holiday is February 8, but since it falls on a weekend, the holiday will be observed on the next working day, Monday. 

Here is the list of public holidays in Thailand this year 2020.
