Makar Sankranti

What is the one thing that we crave in this world as humans?  “Beautiful relationships”, filled with love, care, joy, sharing, and bonding.

So, how do we make these relationships beautiful?  “Gift-giving” makes you feel good and happy.

The Makar Sankranti is celebrated for a day in some states while others celebrate it for 3-4 days.  Makar Sankranti festival for the year 2023 falls primarily on January 14th while the celebrations start on January 13th, and go on up to January 17th.  It is an annual Hindu festival that marks the sun’s transition into the zodiac sign of Capricorn signalling the end of winter and the heading towards warm months, longer days, and the spring season.  From this day, the sun begins its journey to the north and we take part in the festivities and celebrate the onset of a new season.  The event is called Uttarayan.

Significance of Makar Sankranti

From the day of Makar Sankranti, the weather gradually improves with a transition from winter to spring.  The trees and shrubs start to bloom with farmers harvesting their bounty and preparing for the next season’s crop.

Makar Sankranti festival is also called the Harvest Festival, celebrated in regions where agriculture is still a major occupation.  The January 1st New Year is followed by Makara Sankranti also known and celebrated asUttarayan, Bhogi, Pongal, and Lohri in other parts of India  The festival is celebrated as Pongal in Tamilnadu.  People look forward to and celebrate the festival with pomp and glory by waking up before sunrise and taking a bath preferably in flowing rivers to wash away their past sins thus beginning the New Year on a positive note.  The highlight of this festival is the delicacies prepared from ghee-laden desserts like chikki, Til Ladoo, Puran Poli, and Sweet pongal, to toothsome savouries like khichdi, hot and spicy pongal; etc.  The house is cleaned and decorated after which the delicacies are prepared, offered as prasad, and Sun God is worshipped to ensure a good harvest for the rest of the year.  No festival is complete though without the exchange of gifts that are the best way of showing the love, care, and affection we have for each other.
