Since people follow many religions, a wide number of festivals are celebrated in India. Let’s discuss different festivals celebrated by the people of India.

It is not only a festival of Hindus, even people who follow other religions burst crackers and celebrate this festival. Christmas is a festival of Christians. Christmas is celebrated to remember the birth of Jesus into this world. During this day people who follow different faiths also attend the prayer meeting with Christians. Islamic people of India celebrate Ramzan. It is celebrated to remember the revelation of the holy Quran to prophet Mohammad. Islamic people usually cook Briyani and share it with people who follow different faiths.
