While I was reading some news on Myanmar today, I read about a long holiday week end in Myanmar because of several celebrations. First it was talking about martyr's day and that it was to celebrate General Aung San death more than sixty years ago, saying that this person was a hero for his country since he was the corner stone of Myanmar's independence from the UK, and then they talked about a full moon festival of Waso, but without giving much details.
Can you guys tell me more about these two holidays, I'm really curious.
What are the celebrations for these two events? I understand it is pretty important ones, so what do you Myanmar people do during these days? Is it more about family gathering, or going to the temples to give offerings or maybe big festivities where everybody join?
Please share your knowledge, vision and experience, I'd really appreciate to know more about it
Thanks a lot
