What is Hindu Holidays ?

Hindu Holidays

Hindu holidays are diverse and numerous, celebrating various deities, religious figures, seasonal shifts, and historical events. They are an integral part of Hindu culture and traditions, bringing families and communities together in prayer, feasting, and merriment.

Here are some of the major Hindu holidays:

Diwali: The “festival of lights,” celebrated over five days in October or November, marking the triumph of good over evil and the return of Lord Rama from exile.

Maha Shivaratri: A night dedicated to Lord Shiva, celebrated in February or March with fasting, prayers, and offerings.

Holi: The “festival of colors,” celebrated in March, marking the arrival of spring and the victory of good over evil.

Makar Sankranti: Celebrated in January, marking the beginning of the solar new year and the sun’s entry into Capricorn.

Ram Navami: Celebrates the birth of Lord Rama in March or April, with prayers, fasting, and enactments of the Ramayana.

Krishna Janmashtami: Celebrates the birth of Lord Krishna in August or September, with fasting, devotional singing, and dance dramas.

Navaratri: A nine-day festival honoring the goddess Durga, celebrated in September or October with fasting, prayers, and colorful decorations.

These are just a few examples, and there are many other regional and local Hindu holidays celebrated throughout the year. The dates of these holidays vary depending on the Hindu calendar, which is lunisolar, meaning it is based on both the cycles of the moon and the sun.
