Sinhala New Year (Avurudu) 2018 — Auspicious Times In The U.S.
This is for all of you celebrating the Sinhala New Year in the U.S. and Canada. I don’t know of any, but I guess, given that we are everywhere, that there must be Sinhalese in Mexico and even further South.
Well the auspicious times are invariably given just in Sri Lanka time and that +10.5 time difference can get tricky to convert to U.S. time especially when you have to start with 2:04am. So, I did it for you — albeit just for Eastern. But, all of you know how to convert time from Eastern … plus it is easy enough.
So, here we go.
Dawn of the 2018 Sinhala New Year: Saturday, April 14th @ 2:04am (in Sri Lanka) —->> Friday, April 13th @ 4:34pm (U.S.: Eastern)
Lighting of the heart, and cooking first meal: Saturday, April 14th @ 5:41am (in Sri Lanka) —->> Friday, April 13th @ 8:11pm (U.S.: Eastern)
Commencing work, transactions & partaking in first meal: Saturday, April 14th @ 7:05am (in Sri Lanka) —->> Friday, April 13th @ 9:35pm (U.S.: Eastern)
Anointing with oil: Sunday, April 15th @ 11:04am (in Sri Lanka) —->> Sunday, April 15th @ 1:34am (U.S.: Eastern)
Departing for work: Tuesday, April 17th @ 6:28am (in Sri Lanka) —->> Monday, April 16th @ 8:58pm (U.S.: Eastern)
So, the Old Year, in the U.S., will be on Thursday, April 13th.
OK? Got that.
Happy Sinhala New Year 2017.
