Wesak is the most important of the Buddhist festivals and is [celebrated] on the full moon in May. It celebrates the Buddha's birthday, and, for some Buddhists, also [marks] his enlightenment and death. The [festival] is a celebration of much colour. Homes are decorated and [lanterns] are made of paper or wood. Buddhists also visit their [local] temples for services and teachings, and give offerings to monks..
