Makar Sakranti Is A Special Day
Makara Sankaranti refers to the transmigration of the Sun from one sign of the zodiac to another.
According to the Puranas, on this day Surya, the Sun visits the house of his son Shani, Saturn, who is the lord of the Zodiac Capricorn. Makar Sankranti is one of the most auspicious days for the Hindus and is celebrated in almost all parts of India in myriad cultural forms, with great devotion. This day is celebrated with special sweets, although traditionally flying kites is observed as a part of this festival. On this occasion the sky in Jaipur is filled with kites. People invite friends and relatives to their home for special festival meals. Many Melas or fairs are held on Makar Sankranti. Out of all, well known and most famous is Kumbh Mela.
