Buddha's Birthday in Korea
In Korea, Buddha's Birthday is called 석가탄신일 (Seok-ga tan-si-nil) or 부처님 오신날 (Bu-cheon-im o-sin-nal) meaning "the day when Buddha arrived".
Streets all over are lined with colourful lanterns and many temples offer free meals (like san-chae bim-bim-bap >> rice topped with veggies & hot sauce) and tea to visitors.
This year, it falls on Friday, May 21 - which means it's a public holiday!
