Buddha has a birthday?

A few weeks ago Buddha's birthday was celebrated here in Korea. It's a national holiday so we had a day off work, wahoo! We went with some friends downtown to a Buddhist temple to see all the lanterns and that night saw the Lotus Lantern Parade. It was a fun experience and the lanterns were really quite beautiful.
