End of Buddhist Lent Day (Wan Awk Phansa)

This Buddhist holiday was added to the list of mandatory bar closure days in 2015, though it has not been in the past.
Given that there now is no clear history for this day it will be labeled High probability as a forward prediction, though it is probably certain.
List of Buddist holidays with certain bar closures: Magha Puja (Makha Bucha), Visakha Bucha / Vesak Day, Asalha Puja Day, and Buddhist Lent Day (Wan Khao Phansa)

2016 - 16 Oct:  General bar closure midnight to midnight. Following the sad passing of HMK (13 Oct) there were confusions as whether this day of closing was for one reason or another, however, many venues had reopened prior to this closure so it stands to reason that it was a "simple" day of Buddhist closure just like the year before
