Some of your friends and acquaintances may be observing this in their own ways.
Care and not mind.
OK, I had never heard of Bohdi Day, so for others who haven't either, Wikipedia says it is
... the Buddhist holiday that commemorates the day that the historical Buddha, Shakyamuni or Siddhartha Gautauma, experienced enlightenment, also known as Bodhi in Sanskrit or Pali. According to tradition, Siddhartha had recently forsaken years of extreme ascetic practices and resolved to sit under a Pipul tree and simply meditate until he found the root of suffering, and how to liberate one's self from it.
