Any Mu-Bu’s out there? (Muslim Buddhists… Not quite as catchy as Bu-Jews or Cashews, but maybe I’ll start a trend here.) There’s twice as much reason for you to celebrate today: it’s the Prophet Muhammad’s birthday as well as Nirvana Day, the commemoration of the Buddha’s death.

In contrast to the usual “Chrismukkah” type stories that proliferate whenever the Abrahamic faiths have holiday convergences, I haven’t seen any stories or blog posts about this coincidence. But, maybe something will pop up from India later today.

In the meantime, share your thoughts — and any recommended links — in the Comments section below.
