India Introduction  
 
Festivals

Indians are great festival makers. Each festival is dedicated to a particular deity. Diwali & Holi are the most popular festivals in India.

Diwali:
The Festival of Light: The greatest of all festivals in India. Recently, the White House has included Diwali in the list of major festivals it celebrates. The Diwali falls between 15 October to 15 November. People clean & decorate their houses & women prepare various sweet dishes. In the evening, they worship the elephant god Ganesha, & the godess of wealth Laxmi, and burn lamps & candles around the courtyards & gates. Kids busy themselves with fireworks & crackers.

Holi:
The Festival of Color: Another interesting festival traditionally performed to celebrate a good harvest coming of the Spring season. People make fun by throwing colors & water on each other. Some also take a beverage the Bhang Drinks & sweets made from the Cannabis leaves. The festival falls between 15 February to 15 March. 

Dusshera:
Dusshera is celebrated by the Hindus to commemorate the victory of Lord Rama over the demon King Ravana. .

Christmas:
Indian people seem to have accommodated Christmas as part of their culture, especially in the cities. Not only the Christians, the Hindus, especially the younger generation celebrate Christmas with much fanfare.

Id:
What Diwali is for the Hindus, Id is for the Muslims in India. Eid concluded the fasting month of Ramadan, the ninth month according to Muslim calendar. The festival traditionally celebrates the revelation of Koran to Prophet Muhammad.

Besides the above metioned ones, there are hundreds of other festivals including Mahavir Jayanti, Buddha Jayanti, Guru Purnima, Raksha Bandhan, Krishna Janmashtami, and Kumbh Mela that are celebrated in India with much importance.
