Lonely Birthday Video January Twenty Fifth is a video about a song from the Kingdom of Thailand. The latter part of the song is in English.

Thailand is a country in South East Asia that was never colonized by a European power even though Thailand gave up territories to the French in 1867 and the British in 1893. The Portuguese were the first Europeans to reach Thailand in 1511. Thailand's name in Thai language means β€œThe Land Of The Free.”

Thailand's King Rama IX is the world's longest reigning monarch since becoming King in June 1946.

The country used to be called Siam and the name was changed to Thailand in 1939. This is the land where the Siamese cats originated. History records more than twenty breeds of Siamese cats but now only a few breeds survive.

Thailand is also the home of the King Cobra which can grow to be 18 feet long and the reticulated python which can grow to be a little more than 30 feet long. Thailand also has monitor lizards and grows a lot of orchids – what an exotic place! About one tenth of all the world's animal and bird species live in Thailand! It is the home of the mudskipper, which is a fish that spends most of it's time outside water!

Thailand has a land area of about 198,115 square miles and a population of about seventy million people. It is called the land of smiles but the people of Thailand smile for several other reasons besides happiness.

In general they are people that live in considerable harmony. Most Thais live in extended families. About 95% of the citizens of Thailand are Buddhists. Thailand is the home of the world's largest gold Buddha, which is nearly ten feet tall, is solid gold and weighs five tons.

Thailand is a neighbor or Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Malaysia. More tourists visit Bangkok than London – about 16 million every year.
