by | Jun 3, 2020 | Thai, Vocabulary

December in Thai is ธันวาคม pronounced tan-waa kom. Like all months (เดือน deuan) in Thai that have 31 days, it ends with คม (kom).

The abbreviated version of ธันวาคม is ธ.ค.

The beginning of ธันวาคม is ธนู (tá-noo) coming from the Sagittarius Zodiac sign. The reason for this is that months in Thai all come from zodiac signs.
