Everyone in the country tries to bring beauty and happiness to each other. The cities are decorated to celebrate all the important events of Buddha. There are plenty of lanterns lit, devotional songs sung, and food given. The festival is celebrated around the world, but in Sri Lanka it is most beautiful, especially around the Beira Lake!

Temples are crowded with devotees, who worship, offer flowers and light lamps. Dana or alms giving is an important tradition, which means sharing joy and love. People usually wear white clothes to participate in traditional ceremonies. Many of them spend the whole day in the temple. At Sri Lanka, people decorate their houses and public places during Vesak Holiday.
