Vegetarian Diet

I have known of some of my friends who are Buddhists and they are vegetarian on the first and fifteen on each lunar month. Why is that so?

To observe vegetariàn on days of the uposatha (for the “cleansing of the defiled mind, resulting in inner calm & joy”). It can be:
Two days: 1st, 15th
Four days: 1st, 14th, 15th, 30th
Ten days: 1st, 8th, 14th, 15th, 18th, 23rd, 24th, 28th, 29th, 30th
