Thailand's Cabinet has declared Thursday, October 26, 2017, as an additional one-off non-working public holiday in Thailand, on account of that day's royal cremation of Thailand's late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Today's announcement, of a bewilderingly cremation, by western standards, mirrors that, 5 years ago (2012-02-24, 2012-02-07, and 2012-01-31) when Thailand's Cabinet declared Monday, April 9, 2012, as an additional one-off non-working public holiday in Thailand, on account of that day's royal cremation of Her Royal Highness Princess Bejraratana Rajasuda at Sanam Luang, who had died more than 9 months before.

King Bhumibol Adulyadej died last October (2016-10-13) and the anniversary of his death has since been declared a new annual non-working public holiday in Thailand (2017-04-11).
