Visakha Bucha Day

This past Friday was Visakha Bucha, the day which marks the birth, the enlightenment, and the passing of Buddha. Devout Buddhists observe the day by walking around a temple three times, carrying a lighted candle, incense sticks, and lotus flowers. Those who don't go to the temple walk around the mall or the beach until they get tired.
