It’s time to Welcome the Festivals in September
It’s time to welcome the festivals in September!
The month of September holds an important place in the modern-day Gregorian calendar. Considered as the ninth month of the year, September was initially referred to as the “harvest month” in the calendar of Charlemagne. Even the most-loved Autumn season marks its first traces in September & also gradually paves way for the winters to settle down.
Being notable for the long list of events & functions that fall in this month, September has always been a rejoiceful phase for the people in our country. It is in fact, this month that notches the beginning for some of the most popularly celebrated festivals in India. Be it the religious festivals or the cultural carnivals, the month of September is always painted with the beaming colours of wondrous celebrations & joyous memories. In addition to the humongous list of festivals that are lined-up, the seventh month of the Roman calendar is also home to diverse events that can fascinate you a month long.
Here’s the long list of functions & events that are lined up to decorate the month of September.
One of the widely celebrated religious festivals in India is the Ganesh Chaturthi. The 10-day long festival is more than just a devotional celebration in various parts of the country. Also referred to as Vinayakar Chaturthi, this festival is to celebrate the birth of Lord Ganesh – son of Lord Shiva & Goddess Parvathi. This festival resembles a grand carnival with thousands of Ganesha idol installations, colourful processions, and devotional offerings.
