Aristotle said, “Man is a social animal”. It means he cannot live alone! For a productive sustained life, he needs exposure to the world. Time of acknowledgment or circumstances might be different, but he has to enter into the social world! Festivals and social events play a crucial role in fulfilling this need of a human being. Festivals are one of the essentials of society. They come up with a variety of benefits. Firstly these social outings force us to have a break from our materialistic life approach and provide us with quality time spending with friends, family, and ourselves. They provide us with an opportunity of spreading joy and colors in our lives and the whole community. Several festivals are being celebrated all over the world, with their peculiarities.
