i.e., 1959 to 1961, while still living in Ceylon.
Kind of ‘Mount Lavinia‘ are I would think.

in the U.S. & Canada —

Friday, April 13 at 4:34pm.

[2:04am in Sri Lanka on April 14].

This year, now that I know, I am also including my Sikh friends in this
with their “Vaisakhi“.

They keep on getting fancier each year.

I actually don’t celebrate the Sinhala New Year, other than in my mind, because there is nobody around here to celebrate it with. I also have given up on astrology.

But I did this for nostalgia, because I do remember all of this well.

Enjoy. Happy New Year.

I had expected to find a Stamp Set for this year’s, i.e., April 14, 2016, Sinhala New Year, i.e., Aluth Avurudda. IF they did I could not find them — and please put me right. I will, of course, update this post.

Here is the link to the Philatelic Bureau of Sri Lanka. I couldn’t see any New Year related announcements.

Google Doodle For Sinhala New Year (Avurudu) 2016 On April 14?

by Anura Guruge

Well as you can clearly see I made a formal request, through the PROPER Google channels, last year when I saw how crushed the Sinhalese were when they did not get a Doodle.

Sri Lanka is DUE a Google Doodle.

Inexplicably there was NO Google Doodle for this year’s February 4 ‘Independence Day‘. Again I could, from 8,864 miles away, feel the disappointment and frustration.

BUT I, though no longer a native or citizen, had done my duty — in 2013.

The VERY FIRST Google Doodle that Sri Lanka ever had, for Independence Day 2013, was at MY REQUEST — and I have THE proof.
