Christmas Lights?

“Christmas lights!” hubby-jr exclaimed excitedly (huh? in May?), pointing to the decorated lights along a road near our home.

“No boy-boy, those are not Christmas lights. Yes they are lights but they’re to celebrate Vesak Day…,” hubby trying to explain. There’s a temple just round the corner where we live.

More than two and half years ago…

“Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you….” hubby-jr started singing and clapping while waiting for the bus. It took a few seconds before I realised that hubby-jr thought that the thick red joss-sticks stuck on the ground were candles! (Adding to the confusion were the chinese “cup cakes” beside them!) It was the hungry ghost time of the year!
