Festivals 2020

This page provides you a collection of Indian festivals and holidays in the year 2020. The Indian calendar includes government and national holidays in India, Buddhist holidays, Jain holidays, Sikh holidays, Christian holidays and Muslim holidays.

Today's era is the era of science. Human being's debut on the moon in the twentieth century is an important achievement for mankind. Human being has moved towards multi-dimensional development through continuous new research and experiments in almost all areas of life.

Despite this, all-round development of human being is not possible unless there is emotional development along with intellectual development. The festivals of our country, our festivals, have always been participants in the emotional development of human being.

These festivals develop moral qualities like compassion, kindness, simplicity, hospitality, mutual love and goodwill and benevolence in humans. The concept of these moral values gives a human or emotional force.

The joy that comes from celebrating festivals, along with moral values, is no less important in today's tense atmosphere. If India is called a country of festivals, it will not be an exaggeration. People of different religions and sects reside in this country and the order of festivals related to some religion or community keeps on going here.

Sometimes it is a Diwali for Hindus and sometimes a Vaishaki of Sikhs. Sometimes Muslims celebrate Eid and sometimes Christians are seen praying in the church on Christmas. These festivals bring excitement of happiness in the dull routine of human beings.

Festivals of India highlight the greatness of the country's culture. These celebrations are our pride. Our festivals always play a major role in unifying the different colors of different castes, languages, provinces and different sects. The nature of festivals in this country of different religions is also different. The nature of some festivals is so wide that most of the people take part in it, while some festivals are regional which are limited to a particular region, such as Chhath in Bihar, Baisakhi in Punjab or Pongal in Tamil Nadu.

Indian festivals are often organized according to the seasonal cycle. All the festivals provide happiness, gaiety and enthusiasm to the public and these festivals also carry a special message in themselves. For example, the festival of Rakshabandhan shows the deepening of brother-sister love and brother takes a promise to protect his sister.
