Online community posts best wishes to His Majesty

Early in December every year, the Thai online community pays its respects to His Majesty the King by posting their best wishes to the Monarch on the occasion of his birthday through the social media.

Today, the day before His Majesty's birthday on December 5, many Thais are changing their Facebook profile pictures to celebrate the King's birthday.

While the photographs are very varied, most carry a message that offers best wishes to His Majesty on the occasion of his birthday and includes the words "Long Live The King of Thailand". They also feature a commitment to undertake good deeds as a gift to the His Majesty, and to respect the King forever.

The messages most frequently posted are "We Love The King" and "Long Live The King".
