Ascension Day is also known as "Men's Day" or "Father's Day" in many parts of Germany. To mark the occasion, groups of men traditionally go on boys-only outings - with a whole lot of beer in tow.
The boys appeared relaxed, sitting up in bed and thanking rescuers in a new video released by Thai authorities. The boys and their soccer coach will be discharged from the hospital next week, the health minister said.
How has sitting tight in the dark in a flooded cave, hoping for help, affected the Thai boys? A German child psychologist says turning the story into a movie could be harmful to their mental health.
A cave complex in Thailand where 12 schoolboys and their soccer coach were trapped
for more than two weeks before they were safely brought out will be turned into a museum to showcase the rescue.
The rescued boys flashed victory signs from their hospital beds in a video released by the Thai government. Doctors said the boys were in a "very good mental state" but they will remain hospitalized for up to a week.
