And it is Buddha's Birthday, also known as Hana Matsuri in Japan. The story goes
that when the Buddha was born, dragons flew down from heaven and poured fragrant
water over the land, like a sweet rain, and all the flowers on land and water
bloomed simultaneously. So on this day, statues of a young Buddha are decorated
with flowers and carried to temples in procession, and children in Japan take
turns pouring sweet tea over the Buddha's head. It is a day of gratitude. (the writer's almanac)
