When is Makar Sankranti?

Makar Sankranti literally means Capricorn Transition. This holiday celebrates the beginning of the harvesting season. This day is determined astrologically by the movement of the sun from Sagittarius to Capricorn, which occurs about 21 days after the winter solstice.

This holiday often involves the worship of Saraswati Maa (Goddess of Knowledge) as well as of ancestors. It is also a day of generosity and gift-giving.

It is a time to renew, refresh and to set new life goals.
