Makar Sankranti, also known as the ‘festival of harvest’, is a significant festival celebrated in India, Nepal and other parts of South Asia. It marks the transition of the sun into the Makara rashi (Capricorn) on its celestial path, signaling the end of winter and the beginning of longer days.
The festival is celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm, with people participating in various rituals and customs. One of the most popular ways to celebrate Makar Sankranti is by flying kites, which symbolize the victory of good over evil and the arrival of spring.
People also take a dip in sacred rivers and lakes to purify themselves and seek blessings from the gods. They also prepare delicious food, such as til-gud (sesame and jaggery) laddoos, which are considered auspicious and are distributed among friends and family.
In addition to these traditional customs, people also take the opportunity to share Happy Makar Sankranti photos, Happy Makar Sankranti banners, and Happy Makar Sankranti images with their loved ones, spreading the cheer and joy of the festival.
Overall, Makar Sankranti is a time for celebrating the harvest season, expressing gratitude for the blessings of the past year, and looking forward to a prosperous new year. Let’s all celebrate this beautiful festival with joy and festivity!”
