List of Festivals of India (National, Religious, Harvest and Seasonal) and Indian States

By and large, there are three kinds of festival in India. These are national festivals, religious festivals, and seasonal festivals. National festivals are festivals that happen because of historical national events. Religious festivals constitute a vast majority of the country’s festivals, thanks to its rich heritage and secular traditions. Harvest festivals are less in number and are usually state-varying. When celebrated, they are done with great vigour. Here is more about each of the types of festival of our country.

National Festivals

There are three major national festivals – republic day, Independence Day, and Gandhi’s birthday. Independence Day is celebrated on August 15, to signify the day when India freed itself from the British Raj. The republic day is celebrated on January 26, to commemorate the day the Indian government took over rule and the day the constitution was signed. Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday is celebrated on October 2.

Religious Festivals

Because there are many religions, there are also many religious festivals. These include Holi, Diwali, Durga Pooja, and Guru purab for Sikhs; Eid, Ramadan and Muharram for Muslims; Good Friday, Easter and Christmas for Christians, and so on. All religions are treated alike, although because of prevalence; Hinduism gets more attention.
