Makar Sankranti is a Hindu festival celebrated in almost all parts of India and Nepal in a myriad of cultural forms. Makar Sankranti is a harvest festival and is celebrated by Hindus in the month of Magha in India. On this day the Sun returns to the Northern Hemisphere and passes from the Tropic of Cancer to the Tropic of Capricorn. It is celebrated differently in different parts of the State. In the sacred river of Ganges, people take dip in water and worship the Sun God to purify their souls. The festival signifies that one should eliminate from the darkness of deception and commence to enjoy a new life with brightness.
Makar Sankranti marks the transition of the Sun into the zodiac sign of Makara rashi (Capricorn) on its celestial path. The day is also believed to mark the arrival of spring in India and is a traditional event. Makara Sankranthi is a solar event making one of the few Indian festivals which fall on the same date in the Gregorian calendar every year: 14 January, with some exceptions when the festival is celebrated on 13 or 15 January.
