April 13, 2011 Holiday – Sinhala and Tamil New Year in Sri Lanka

The celebration of Sinhala & Tamil New Year in Sri Lanka was motivated by religious influences of Buddhist and Hindu. The festival coincides with the end of harvest, so the bounty from colourful fruit trees fuels celebrations. The celebration of Sinhala & Tamil New Year may officially lasts for seven days but still depends on the family’s social and economic status. People, young and old, wear their best or newly bought dresses and take part in religious celebrations as a thanksgiving for a year of bountiful harvest. Traditional Sri Lankan food is served which are shared by the whole family. Coconut-based sweets and delicacies are also popular during the holiday.
