Like various countries have their own New Year celebrations aligned with their cultural rituals and beliefs, as such Sri Lanka celebrates New Year in the month of April. Hence it is a holiday month in the isle where the Sinhalese and Tamil communities celebrate the dawning of the New Year. It’s that time of the year everyone start a fresh, and the atmosphere smells of delicious sweetmeats specially made for the holiday. What’s so warming to witness is that at the new years the entire country engages in a series of activities at the same auspicious time, dressed in the same colour, facing the same direction wishing peace and prosperity to all for the coming New Year. Festivities and traditional rituals are best seen in the rural areas. Colombo empties out during this time when most head to their homelands or escape to the cooler hills or the sandy beaches.
