Makar Sankranti

Nepal is observing a public holiday today on the auspicious occasion of Makar Sankranti, also known as Maghi. It is a festival which is celebrated to mark the shift of the Sun into the zodiac constellation of Capricorn (called Makar in Nepali). It falls on the very first day of the Nepali month Magh.

It is believed that with the arrival of this fiesta, the short and chilling days of winter gradually turn into longer and warmer days, eventually giving an invitation to spring. It is also reputed as the festival of harvest in Nepal. The Sun is worshipped in the form of God on this day by the Hindu devotees. They take a bath on the sacred rivers which are nearby the places that they live in. The delicacies that are eaten are ghee, Chaakku, Teel ko laddu, tilauri and yam. So do not miss them out if you are on a holiday in Nepal on 15th of January.
