What is Visakha Bucha Day in Thailand?

Visaka Bucha Day is celebrated on the full moon of the sixth lunar eclipse, commemorating the most significant events in Lord Buddha's life. The day is observed as a day of devotion and recollection of Buddha's teachings and social and spiritual ideals. The holiday is generally observed in the months of May and June. However, because the date of the next full moon falls on May 5th at 3:42 PM, this makes Visakha Bucha Day 2017 observance.

In 1997, King Bhumibol Adulyadej established May 4-6 as National Days of Prayer and Meditation. The days are declared national holidays so that everyone has time to reflect on their lives and engage in self-reflection and meditation.

Thais traditionally spend the first day of the festival visiting temples to pray for good fortune and success in business. They also give money to beggars on their way to work or school. The second day is called "Widow's Day" because it is believed that women who wear black are given permission to do so by honoring the memory of their husbands.

The third day is known as "Father's Day". It is believed that fathers play an important role in their children's lives and thus deserve our respect and honor them with gifts such as food and flowers.

People celebrate Visakha Bucha Day by praying for others' well-being and by making donations to charity.

These colors are used in many cultures to celebrate life, even if the culture has different names for some of them. For example, in India, people use red and white for any funeral ceremony; however, the day before they bury their family member, they burn a red flame on an oil lamp placed on the window sill of their house. This is to tell the soul of the deceased not to return until after the initiation of burial proceedings.

In America, the Day of the Dead is celebrated on November 2nd. Families dress in clothes that reflect their love for those who have died. They may wear purple, pink, or white because these are the colors of the rosette that is cut from a single flower head. Children make miniature altars with candles, pictures, and small gifts for their favorite saints. Adults do the same with small cemeteries where they place stones to honor the memory of each deceased loved one.

What are the colors of Palm Sunday?

Palm Sunday is best dressed in red or purple. Purple is used until the church is stripped naked on Maundy Thursday during Holy Week; the church remains stripped bare on Good Friday and Holy Saturday, however black may be used in some areas on those days. On Easter Sunday, the church dresses itself in white.

The palm leaves are used to make crosses. Jesus was crucified with nails and a crown of thorns. The color red represents blood and the passion of Christ, while purple shows his dignity as a king.

During the Easter Vigil, the priest carries a lighted candle and an icon of the crucifixion. As he walks down the center aisle, he sings a special prayer known as the "Easter Antiphon." At the end, he lights each candle on the altar one by one, saying a prayer for each person being baptized. When he gets to the last candle, which is in front of the main altar, he ends with these words: "May this gift of fire guide you into all truth." A deacon then throws open the doors of the church and flames from several dozen candles fill the nave with smoke. Everyone goes outside to sing "Christ Is Risen!"

Inside the church, musicians play drums, pipes, and harps as priests carry large gold statues of the saints and place them around the sanctuary.
