Akshaya Trithiya day - auspicious to buy gold???

Buy gold today, my well-intentioned colleague urged me yesterday. Why? Why the emphasis on today (or even gold, that is). It's Akshaya Trithiya day, it will bring you luck! He passionately replied.

And what is this Akshaya Trithiya? A quick check on Wikipedia entry on "Akshaya Trithiya" said that it is considered to be very lucky day to start new business or venture. Many people buy gold or property on this day.

Alas, 6 May has passed. Perhaps I mistook the Cooling Off Day yesterday as the day of not to purchase any gold (or property). Heh.

But if you're really curious (and more positive than me), you may want to take note that in 2012, the date of Akshaya Trithiya is April 24.
