The first Hindu festival of New Year is here. Makar Sankranti is a harvest festival and is celebrated across the country. Unlike other Hindu festivals, it is celebrated on a fixed date, i.e., 14th January. It marks the day when sun enters zodiac sign of Capricorn which is also known as Makar rashi. From this festival, days become longer, also auspicious rituals and ceremonies start being performed.

People wake up early morning and start preparing for puja. On this day, it is considered auspicious to take a dip in rivers, especially Ganga. People give 'daan' to Brahmins and poor on Makar Sankranti and worship the Sun god.

Makar Sankranti also comes with melas. While there is Makara Mela in Odisha, Tusu Mela is held in some parts of Jharkhand. In Gujarat, you can see millions of kites floating in the air on Makar Sankranti. The festival is known by different names across the country. In Tamil Nadu it is called Pongal,  Lohri in Punjab, Uttarayan in Gujarat, Bhogali Bihu in Assam, Poush Sankranti in West Bengal and Maghi in Haryana, Himachal Pradesh. According to Hindu epics, Bhishma Pitamah waited for Uttarayan so that he can die peacefully.
