Makarsankranti is the festival of new beginnings, new resolution & new commitment as it is the first festival of the year. It is the festival where everyone forgets their past & steps forward with a new beginning & firm determination in mind.
This festival also has an astrological importance as sun enters into a zodiac sign capricorn on its celestial path. It is also believed that this day marks the reduction of the winter season & beginning of a new spring season.
According to Indian tradition women wear black colored attire on this day. The importance of wearing black colored attire is that this festival comes in the midst of the winter season & black color has the capacity to absorb heat.
Usually people celebrate this festival wearing new clothes, worshiping God, flying kites & the most interesting part is that people exchange til ladoos or tilgul or sugar balls (sweet made of sesame & jaggery) while exchanging this sweet they says the sentence ‘’til gul ghya god god bola’’ it means that accept this tilgul & utter sweet words with everyone.
In Northern India too, Lohri is celebrated with great Pomp & Pongal in South India. The day before Sankranti is called Bhogi and this is when people discard old stuff and habits and concentrate on new things causing change or transformation. Now isn’t that a fab way to start the year?
