New year in Sri Lanka (or Sinhala New Year) – ‘Aluth Avurudhu’ usually falls on either 13th or 14th April every year. According to Sinhalese mythology, the New Year begins when the sun moves from Meena Rashiya (The house of Pisces) to Mesha Rashiya (The house of Aries). Sinhala and Tamil New Year or Aluth Avurudu rituals begin with observance of Nonagatha (inauspicious time). People go to temples and perform religious rites to receive the blessing. The most important custom during this period is to offer betel to the parents and elders and to worship them. It is considered as a token of love and gratitude.
