Good Friday & B'day of Kuan Yin

Today (7th Apr) is a holy day for both Christians & Buddhists. For the Christians, it is Good Friday; for the Buddhists, it is the birthday of the Goddess of Mercy or Kuan Yin.

The papers have described this joint celebrations as an “extremely rare occurrence”. According to YiJing calculations, Good Friday coincided with Kuan Yin’s birthday twice in more than 200 years, from 1906 to 2127 which means we will have to wait another 20 years before these two important religious dates coincide again. Is this even rare than having the GongXiRaya or DeepaRaya?

Anyway, the next occurrence will be on March 26, 2027 and I would be 48 years old by then!! Would I be still writing blog that time? Hahaha maybe my son also start writing one loh..... :D
