Thadingyut Light Festival

The Thadingyut Light Festival takes place in October to mark the end of the Buddhist equivalent of Lent or Vassa<em. The festival is marked by the illumination of private houses and public buildings utilising coloured electric bulbs, lanterns and candles. Ye Lwin Oo’s blog provides an interesting insight into the festival together with some great photos detailing the lighting practices utilised in Yangon, Burma.
