| Sinhala and Tamil new year festival.
The Sinhala and Tamil New Year is the national festival in Sri Lanka. The New Year is generally on the 13 or 14th of April every year. The Sinhalese and the Hindus celebrate it in different. When it has coming we buy new cloths, clean our houses etc… Firstly we look at the new moon as a traditional habit. There is an inauspicious time. At that time we go to the temples and get the benediction of the monk. After the inauspicious time come to the auspicious time. At that time we light the hearth, get the special meal and start the work for the New Year. We go to see folks and elders with full of hands gift and sweets.
As the children we have funny time and we enjoy in that time.
We receive new customs, toys, and sweets as the gifts. We play folk events in that time. It is a very pleasure time for us.
