A Buddha Birthday

Buddha's birthday falls on the eighth day of the fourth month in the Chinese lunar calendar. This year, in the Western calendar (the Gregorian calendar actually - the one we follow), that day is today; May 24th.

Whoo hoo! It's a Buddha Birthday for me! ...but only this year.

Let's just hope my Buddha Birthday is more successful than my Jesus Year, during which I failed to shun shit.

Then again, I don't think a Buddha Birthday comes with a task.

If your birthday is on any of these dates, you've got a Buddha Birthday coming too:

2007: May 24 <-- this one's all mine!
2008: May 12
2009: May 2
2010: May 21
2011: May 10
2012: April 28

Dang it! No Buddha Birthday for me--and I'm a Buddhist (albeit a lazy one)! Maybe its just as well. Sitting under a tree with snails on my head doesn't sound fun. Even with enlightenment thrown in.

Happy bb.
