India Festivals

Indian is known to be the country of festivals. Every month of the calendar holds a festival that one can enjoy in India. Being a secular country it houses more than four religions. Every religion has its own set of festivals that the entire nation celebrates. Each festival has its own signature style of celebration. All festivals are unique in their own sense. The traditions and celebrations of the same festival also vary from one region to another. The festivals have a significant story or history behind it. This story is the key reason to all the rituals and customs that are performed for them. In the South, the festival of Pongal or Sankranti celebrates the harvest, and heralds the onset of summer, with its longer days and shorter nights. In North India it is the festival of Lohri, featuring dancing and celebrations around a bonfire, which marks the end of winter and welcoming of warmer weather.

Teej in Rajasthan welcomes the monsoon. Yet another harvest festival this one native to Kerala is Onam. Some festivals are dedicated to gods and goddesses and to their incarnations and reincarnations for example,Diwali celebrates the return of Rama, Prince of Ayodhya, after fourteen long years of exile. It is also dedicated to the worship of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, and in eastern India to goddess Kali, the consort of Lord Shiva. In India, both Christmas (celebrating the birth of Christ) and Easter celebrating his resurrection are also observed. The Sikhs celebrate the births of their leaders Guru Nanak and Guru Gobind Singh, while Muslims observe Id and Muharram.
