This year i feel that we are having a grate Sinahala And Tamil New Year 2009 due to the defeat of LTTE terrorist and wish that all Sri Lankans "Suba Aluth Aurudhak Wewa" in sinahla language.
If you ever wondering about Sinahala And Tamil New Year it is "In April (the month of Bak), when the sun moves from the Meena Rashiya (House of Pisces) to the Mesha Rashiya (House of Aries) in the celestial sphere; Sri Lankans begin celebrating their New Year or Aluth Avurudhu (in Sinhala) and Puththandu (in Tamil). It marks the end of the harvest season and also coincides with one of 2 instances when the sun is directly above Sri Lanka."[wikipedia]
