 These are the holy days that Chinese Buddhists celebrate by visiting temples to make offerings of prayers, incense, fruits, flowers and donations. On such days they observe the moral precepts as well as having only vegetarian food.

The dates given are based on the Chinese Lunar system so that 1.1 means the 'First day of the First lunar moon' and so on.
