Why fairs are held on Makar Sankranti?It is a well known fact that fairs are held on Makar Sankranti festival. In my childhood I used to go on foot to a fair held near my village. It is organizing till now every year.
It starts from 15th January and ends on 21st January every year. The Ramleela programme is shown here by the local artist. People watch it and enjoy it. On the last day when the marriage of Lord Shri Ram and Goddess sita is held people consider it as the real marriage and consider it a secret act.
Not only in my village but in other places too the fair are held on the occasion of Makar Sankranti.
Is there any logic behind it?
Please share it.
