Yearly Festivals Intro

India is a land of festivals. Each festival has its own mythological, spiritual, and social significance and remains as an occasion for religious observance and joyful celebration. However, the purpose and periodicity of these festivals vary. While there are also occasions which fall every month, most of the famous festivals are celebrated once a year. Diwali, Navaratri, Shivaratri, Ganesh Chaturthi, Vedic New Year, etc. can be cited as some of the widely celebrated yearly festivals.

While these festival days are all regarded as sacred occasions, they are also dedicated to specific Gods.
