12. Nirvana (Wesak) Day, Asia
Celebrated in the month of May, this celebrates the birth, attainment of Nirvana and the death of Lord Buddha as is celebrated by all Buddhists in Sri Lanka, China and all around Asia. The main idea is to occupy yourselves in merit work but the celebrations continue with giving away free food for the needy, lanterns and colorful pandols.
