Vesak (also knowns as Vesākha or Wesak) Day falls on May 28 this year - that's tomorrow. It is an annual traditional Buddhist holiday to observed the birth, enlightenment and passing of Gautama Buddha.
This holiday is observed around Asia where Buddhist devotees will pray at the temples, meditate, paying homage to Buddha and partake in vegetarian food. It is also a time to make special effort to bring joy and happiness to the unfortunate.
For this spiritual celebration, the Koolred Team wishes for peace and happiness to all wherever you are. Happy holidays and enjoy the long weekend.
Since March, we've been introducing new features and enhancements (on existing features) on Koolred. Our goal is to give you a fun online experience when you come to our site, whether you're researching for your next holiday or making new friends.
In case you may have missed out on the news of what we've released since March, here's a quick recap so that you can go ahead and try them out:
We know you love to chat and that's why we introduced our own Chat where you can communicate with your Koolred friends when you're logged in.
We're aware that other than Koolred, you also use Twitter and Facebook. So to help you savvy Internet users share what you love all around these sites, we've introduced Koolred Connections. Now you can easily share something on Koolred with just one click.
Keep a look out for the next few months as more new features are coming out soon. Follow us on Twitter for the freshest updates!

This Sunday, May 9, is Mother's Day. The Koolred Team wishes all mummies out there, whether you're on Koolred (which we hoped you are or will be soon) or somewhere close, Happy Mother's Day!
And to all children (and husbands!) out there, don't forget to do something special for this important woman in your life. Lest you forget, today is Friday and this probably serves you as a reminder to get going with the planning for this Sunday. Also, if she's on Koolred too, don't forget to send her some Koolgifts (but remember to give her the non-virtual gifts later on, OK?).
That said, have a great Mother's Day weekend!
