Happy Sinhalese “Old Year” 2020 — April 13.

Come on. It makes sense. It is the day BEFORE the ‘New Year‘. So, it is the ‘Old Year‘. Well, we can be perverse.

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.
