Today we learned about the Bodhi Day or the Buddha’s Enlightenment.  Bodhi Day is a day of remembrance and meditation. Often multi-colored lights are strung about the home to honor the day of enlightenment.  A candle is also lit for thirty days to symbolize enlightenment.Some people have fiscus  trees or Buddhist statue and place 3 Jewels near it , The Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha.

We made leaf cookies to symbolize the Bodhi Tree  out of gingerbread dough.

We worked on the Calendar , our ABC’s, We signed the letter j.  We read I have a Dreidel by Mazie Baum.
