Abstract

Hinduism has more festivals than any other religion. Only a small number are universally observed throughout India. Many are celebrated in a group of northern or southern states, or even in one state. Large numbers of festivals are found in just a few or even one village. Festivals of other religions such as Islam can and do take place alongside Hindu festivals.
