The Christmas Series

I often post pictures here of the public displays of decorations that I spot while I’m out and about in Bangkok. This year I’ve been a woman possessed.

Today marks the start of a series of Christmas decorations and we’re going to start with the craziest. Forget Father Christmas, this is Father Condom. Yup, that’s correct: Father Christmas made entirely of condoms, courtesy of Cabbages and Condoms.

Cabbages and Condoms restaurants were established to support the various development activities of the PDA (Population and Community Development Association.) The idea is that condoms should be as available as cabbages. You can read more here.

I love your photos JJ - it's like an insight into a whole different world (and hopefully one I'll get to see in April next year - woot! :o))

JJ said...

Thank you. OMG, that's so exciting. But Cally, WHAT ARE YOU DOING AWAKE AT THIS TIME OF DAY? Isn't it the early hours in the UK?

Carol and Chris said...

Hehehe...always makes me laugh!! Did you notice the lights outside too? They have a star, a bell, a santa and a condom :-)

That is so hideously awesome!

You wouldn't think Santa would need that many, seeing as he only comes once a year.

(Ah, someone had to say it)

JJ said...

Carol, NO! I'm not sure I can take more condoms!

Spiral, believe me, if I'd thought of it, I would've said it. You do make me laugh and Husband reports enjoying it too.

Oh Dogs!
(I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit)

Spiral beat me to that joke *sigh*
But in case nobody knows the rest of it...
...and that's down the chimney - which is why he has no children.

Hope you're feeling better, JJ.

JJ said...

LOL, Rachel, let that be a lesson to you - don't come to my blog with a mouthful of tea and biscuits!

Pat, am I the only one who didn't know the joke? I am feeling a little better, thank you. Just waiting to do now... Am trying to write through it.

OMG that is too funny, I love it! Can't wait to see what other Xmas displays you get over there!

Paige said...

I think that's the most bizarre thing I've seen in a long time.

Spiral you are one funny woman (funny as in ha ha! not funny as in weird ;))

KAREN said...

That's so wrong :oO Great photos though :o)

Lane said...

They're brilliant. Look how they've done his curly hair.
I'm slightly worried I like them so much.

Angie said...

Hahaha, that's great.
(Spiral almost made me snort my soup!)
Looking forward to the rest of the Bangkok photo series.
