It's Vesak Day

Even if I am not a Buddhist, I would like to join our friends from Buddhist countries to celebrate Vesak day!

I did a little research and found out that Vesak is an annual celebration of all practicing Buddhists which encompasses the birth, enlightenment Nirvana, and the passing, Parinirvana of Gautama Buddha. According to the tradition old celebration, Vesak is also a means to making special effort to bring happiness to the unfortunate members of our society.

I just thought that this is a great way to share our personal riches or anything to share which will bring happiness to everyone is really cool. It's cooler if we can do it every day, right? It's the coolest if it's according to what our hearts tell us.

Enjoy the rest of the Saturday guys!

I think it is really great you take part in so many activities. You seem to be a very open minded and adventurous person.
