    'merit-making' ceremonies celebration Buddhist holy days,
    personal milestones,
    and the local meeting place.
    Young and old alike participate in celebrations such as the Baisri welcoming ceremony, for honored guests, and which is also commonly featured in rural wedding and ordination ceremonies.
