The celebrations involved washing small statues of Buddha and burning lots and lots of incense. The temples were filled with offerings of flower bouquets and piles of fruit.

There were many celebrations throughout the day, including a kung fu demonstrations by Shaolin monks, face changers, and some strength acrobatics. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to go see any of the dragon dances or bun making festivals.

I must admit I am shockingly ignorant about Asian religions, so I apologize for not writing more about the rituals.
