Because it is the time of the festive season and everyone is intimated in the colors of celebration. “The more you celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate,” says Oprah Winfrey. Festivals give meaning and order to our personal lives. If you are buying clothes, or making a special dish that you share with others, you start a cycle of joy and activities. All kinds of festivals give us immense enthusiasm to celebrate them every time. I love shopping, decorating my house, making myself and my family feel special. People look for small opportunities to bring their family and friends together and have a good time. Mass celebration leads to higher energy to deal with life’s obstacles. You can celebrate with yourself, you can celebrate with others — you change your vibration energy from low to high.

Preparations are in full swing, because everyone wants to celebrate the festival with great pomp and show.
