Happy Sinhalese “Old Year” 2020 — April 13.

Yes, New Year’s EVE would make more sense.
But, unlike an ‘Eve’ this is full-day, FULL holiday.
National Holiday, April 13 & April 14. We like our holidays.
I, alas, do NOT celebrate the Sinhalese New Year — other than on the Web.
My U.S. family is totally oblivious and has NO interest in learning, let alone observing. IF I did say ‘Presents’ they may be more motivated.
It was my beloved grandmother’s birthday. So, it was always a dual celebration. She was the one that brought me up.
So, HAPPY “Old Year” 2020.
