Tazaungdaing, also called Myanmar’s Festival of Lights, happens every year on the full moon day at the end of the eighth month of the Burmese Buddhist calendar.
It closes a month of celebratory offerings to local monasteries, and is marked by street fairs and trips to local Buddhist landmarks.
This year the day fell on November 28th, the first day of a week reporter Bruce Wallace spent in Myanmar.
