Lunar quarters vs Poya Days[edit]

While adding citations, it came to my attention that this article may incorrectly identify "Poya" when describing it to mean full moon days only. The scholarly Wheel Pub. article (see newly added citation) explained Poya as all four lunar quarters, with the full moon Poya simply being the most celebrated.

Lacking personal knowledge, I hesitate to make such a significant correction. Can anyone raised in Sri Lanka kindly clarify? Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Reverence Still (talkcontribs) 04:40, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

@Reverence Still: You are correct! There are four "Poya" days per month. --Lee (talk) 16:13, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
