In Korea, the Buddha’s Birthday is called “Seokga tansinil” (meaning “the day that Buddha came”).

Some people buy lanterns to wish their luck and, depending on where you choose to put it up, the price varies. (10,000 won and up).

I also noticed people wrote wishes on the plates of stone for family peace and university entrance exam.
