A very merry Christmas from The Thaiger team

Tanutam Thawan



Caitlin, Champ, Earth, Jett, May, Austin, Tim and Mike would like to wish every single one of our readers a heartfelt Merry Christmas. Whilst the challenges of 2020 have brought grief, confusion and sadness to many, it’s also reminded us about the importance of family and friendships. It’s also been a year of change for us too… we’re all in this mess together!

Christmas is an annual reminder about valuing life’s simple gifts – giving, sharing and being there for each other. If you can’t be together with your family or long-standing friends today put a moment aside to call them, maybe just a quick personal message.

If you’re a Christian you may be worshipping with others, or at least recalling the original message of Christmas and the birth of hope in Jesus Christ. For many others, the tradition of family and friends getting together and celebrating will be a shared experience today. If you’re alone, The Thaiger is always here with some fresh news and we’re thinking about you on this day.

We’d also like to wish our peers a very Merry Christmas – fellow story-tellers and journalists at the English-language Bangkok Post, Thai PBS World, Nation Thailand, The Pattaya News, Thisrupt, The Phuket News, Khaosod English, Chiang Mai Times and the many Thai-language outlets that form the core of Thailand’s vibrant news media.

Also to our broader Thaiger family that provide HR, IT, accountancy and administrative services as well as the new staff working in the Bangkok offices under the leadership of Pruek.

The Thaiger is grateful for everyone’s support over this most difficult of years and promise to continue to provide accurate, timely news and information in return.

Have a happy and joyous day!

    Merry Christmas to you all.
    Unfortunately, cannot be in Thailand this Christmas for the first time in 7 years.
    Hopefully a speedy and safe vaccination program will be rolled out globally in 2021.
    Take care.
