Makar Sankranti is one of the most auspicious occasions for the Hindus, and is celebrated in almost all parts of India in myriad cultural forms, with great devotion, fervour, and gaiety. It is a harvest festival. Makar Sankranti is perhaps the only Indian festival whose date always falls on the same day every year: January 14, with some exceptions, when the festival is celebrated on January 13 or January 15. Makar Sankranti is also believed to mark the arrival of spring in India.
