Festivals with Sara Diwali for kids BookosmiaHey everyone!

Makar Sankranti or Uttarayan or Maghi or simply Sankranti, is a festival day in the Hindu calendar,  dedicated to the deity Surya.

I am so excited to hear how my friends across the world share about how they celebrate the harvest festival.

Christmas with Sara Kiara from NY Bookosmia

 

Here is 5 year old Kiara talking about how she learnt about the festival and celebrated it in New York. Kiara goes to pre  kindergarten at child time, Queensbury, NY.

 

===============================================================

Every year, my mom explains to me how she celebrated kite flying festival (Uttarayan) in India. Every year, she makes chikki (sesame cookie) too.

 

My mom and I make kites. I decorate the kites. My mom tells me they used to go up to the terrace to fly kites and enjoy kite fights. I live in USA and we don’t  have a terrace. So we go to the backyard and fly kites.

 

I love the sesame chikki. My mom tells me that it is a healthy cookie. I also painted the kite on a canvas with my mom. I practiced few Gujarati words related to Uttarayan.
