Have you celebrated Makar Sankranti today?Makar Sankranti is an auspicious occasion celebrated differently in different regions in our country. Winter has by now established itself and our kitchens are full of nature's bountiful. So naturally this time becomes an occasion to celebrate with friends and family and also express our gratitude to nature. In India the occasion of Makar Sankranti is observed widely in different ways. In some region it is celebrated as Pongal, some others mark it as Uttarayan(Kite festival) and some as Lohri.
In my place, that is Assam, we celebrate it as Magh Bihu or Bhogali Bihu. It is a harvest festival. The eve of Makar Sankranti is celebrated with community feast and offerings of Ladu, Pitha are made to the God of Fire in the early morning next day.
I would like to know from my ISC friends whether you have celebrated the occasion of Makar Sankranti? If yes what do you call it in your region and how you celebrate it.
