Hindu Holidays

Hinduism is a worldwide religion, with a variety of holidays and festivals celebrated across the lunar calendar. Hindu festivals are known by the Sanskrit word “Utsava”—which means to grow upward. They are celebrated with feasts, offerings, fasts, vigils, or offerings to deities—but all relate back to the Hindu pantheon.
