Vesak is celebrated by Buddhist as the go to the temple dressed in white to worship. This like many festivals in Sri Lanka happens on the full moon of the month of May. Just like Poson people light up the streets with attractive lantern and pandols. They also give ‘Dansal’ which is giving free food like ice cream, drinks and a meal of rice to everyone who passes by.
