    Buddhist holidays?

    I’m new to Buddhism, and I live in the UK
    So I decided to look up Buddhist holidays, and a lot of it is very conflicting, for example, from the list I found, the Japanese celebrate Buddha’s birthday in april whereas people from South Korea and Taiwan celebrate it in May. Now maybe, the list I found isn’t factual, but regardless, if different countries celebrate different holidays/holidays at different times, which version should I follow, because there isn’t a UK version

    Hi Fionnuala,

    There's a list of the main Buddhist festivals, (UK time) on the website of The Buddhist Society, London UK:
