We have Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddha, Jains, Parsis, and many more which shows this country has a unique dignity in itself. But do you know in India we have festivals every month there is not a single month when there is not a festival? There are many festivals like Diwali, Holi, Eid, etc. Moreover, Foreigners used to come to India, especially to celebrate festivals which led to an increase in Travel and Tourism of the country and foreign income in the home country.

Some of the most favorite festivals are mentioned here by the best Boarding schools in India
.
Because teachers know the importance of festivals and also make their students understand the values and reasons behind celebrating the following festivals in India.


1.Holi:
It is a festival of colors played all over the country, but mainly this originated in “Vrindavan” the city of Lord Krishna, and is celebrated every year in many different ways like “Lathi maar Holi” where ladies used to beat each other with sticks. It is the most favorite attraction of foreigners towards India in March.

2.Deepwali
This festival is celebrated in happiness of victory when Lord Rama defeated Ravana and returned to Ayodhya from Sri Lanka. To welcome them, People used to light up their houses with Diyas, colorful candles and worship the Lord Laxmi and Ganesha for gathering the peace and happiness of life. Moreover, people burnt the crackers for their warm welcome.

3. Rakshabandhan.
This festival is basically for every brother and sister. The sister used to tie a “Rakhi” (a bracelet) on the wrist of his brother and in return brother promises her to take care of her security every time she needs and the ceremony ends up by eating sweets and giving gifts to each other this festival brings both the siblings more together and feel attached to everyone.

4.Eid- ul Fitr.
This festival is one of the biggest festivals of Muslims. They used to keep a fast called “Roza” for the whole month called “Ramadan”, and after completion of 30 days, they finally open their fast by celebrating Eid and distributing sweets to their friends and relatives. Moreover, Eid is dependent upon the visibility of the Moon. In India, the Moon appears after 24 hours of Saudi Arabia.

5.Gurupurab.
As earlier told Sikhs also used to live in our country and have a very vibrant history full of sacrifices. This festival is basically the birthday of every Guru of Sikh culture. The Sikh culture had a total number of 10 gurus and the birthday of every Guru Ji is to be called “Gurupurab”. It is to be celebrated by worshipping gurus and distributing free food in Gurudwaras called “Langar” where many poor people fill their belly.

6.Durgapuja.
This festival is to be celebrated in the month of Ashwin, for a regular period of 10 days whereby people used to worship goddess Durga and also dance by taking Dhunuchi in their hands. Dhunuchi is a vessel made up of red mud including hot cow dung cakes which releases smoke for a long time.

7.Teej festival.
This festival is especially for ladies, on 23 July. Married women used to keep fast for the long lives of their husbands. Women keep fast for the whole day and open it at night when the husband comes over the home. This festival strengthens the bond between two partners and makes them closer than before.
