Quiet Streets

On my walk to work this morning I couldn't help but notice that the bank was closed and that the streets were almost void of all traffic. Reason being is that it's Good Friday and it's an unofficial official holiday here.

I find it rather unusual being that Sri Lanka is primarily a Buddhist country yet we get a day off for Prophet Muhammad's birthday(Muslim) and they celebrate Christmas complete with nativity scenes.
