All Day Beltane in the Northern Hemisphere
Pagan/Wiccan holyday in the Northern Hemisphere begins at sunset on the evening before. Beltane celebrates the fertility and new life of the spring, often with a Maypole dance and Goddess ritual celebrating the sacred feminine and fertility.
All Day Lailat al Bara'ah

This Muslim holiday marks Allah’s writing of everyone’s destiny for the coming year. Many Muslims try to stay awake the entire night in prayer and worship, hoping for good fortune and forgiveness.

For the majority of Muslims worldwide, Lailat al Bara’ah is a cause for celebration, fireworks, and food. Families that have lost a member in the past year are showered with sweet treats by friends, and acts of charity are performed.

All Day Samhain (Southern Hemisphere)

Pagan/Wiccan holyday begins in the Southern hemisphere at sunset the evening before. Samhain, one of the 8 Sabbats of the Wheel of the Year, is a Celtic Festival of the Dead that honors the ancestors, when the veil between this world and the next is the thinnest.

As Pagans in the Northern Hemisphere celebrate Beltane and the coming of Spring, Pagans in the Southern Hemisphere celebrate Samhain. This ancient tradition survives in secular culture as Halloween. Neo-pagans reclaiming this harvest festival consider it the Witches New Year and the most important holyday of the year.

All Day Theravadin New Year
In Theravadin Buddhist communities – primarily in Thailand, Burma, Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Lao – the New Year is celebrated for three days from the first full moon day in April. Practitioners may bathe Buddha images and sprinkle water on monks and elders, or build sand mounds at monasteries or on river banks. In Buddhist tradition, each grain of sand is representative of a wrongdoing, and when the sand is washed away by the river or by other means, that bad deed is washed away, for a clean slate at the start of the year.
11:00 AM - 4:00 PM …and time moved differently…: Fine Arts Senior Thesis Exhibition
In the exhibition ...and time moved differently... the Suffolk University Art Gallery presents installation and objects by Diane Appaix-Castro and Shelby Feltoon. Working in a variety of media, they ask us a fundamental question: How is it that we know ourselves and the world around us?

While Diane and Shelby address different subjects, the underlying themes they share are centered on the complex cognitive process of intelligence, thought and language. The world of the mind is given physical form in an exhibition that welcomes the audience to a deliberately sensory experience while asking them to consider the idea that the ability to know oneself depends on how well we embrace the past, the present, and all of our possible futures.

Opening Reception: 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 27, with artist talks beginning at 6:15 p.m.

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Atheist, Humanist and Agnostic Gathering
Does your spiritual/moral identity exist outside the traditional religious landscape? Want to discuss ethics, relationships, and the "big questions" from a secular standpoint? Join us!

All are welcome!
