Importance of Festivals in Our Life - Monika Vaishnav

Festivals are meant to rejoice special moments and emotions in our lives with our loved ones. They give us a distraction from our day to day, the exhausting routine of life, and give us some inspiration to remember the important things and moments in life.  Festivals were started to pass the legends, knowledge and traditions onto the next generation. They bring excitement in life. 

All festivals are cultural in one way or another.  There are many types of cultural festivals such as National, Religious etc. They all serve the purpose of bringing happiness to our lives and strengthen our sense of community.

National Festivals:  They connect us as a people of a nation.  National festivals connect citizens to important moments of a nation’s history such as our independence day. They solidify patriotic spirits in society.

Religious Festivals: Religious festivals are important for families.  To keep this simple we can all agree that religious festivals help us to teach principles and ethics to our next generations.  All different religious festivals bring the same message of love, tolerance and understanding.  On these occasions, we express our gratitude to God, for the special thing or event that originated on this particular festival.
Overall in simple terms, all the festivals are related to harmony, peace and happiness.
