Makar Sankranti 2018 | Wishes | Messages| Whatsapp Status and Images

Makar Sankranti is one of the most popular Hindu festivals, and also the first festival of the New Year. The festival is known with different names in different parts of the country. It is celebrated as Pongal in Tamil Nadu, Lohri in Punjab, Uttarayan in Gujrat, Bhogali Bihu in Assam and Poush Sangkranti in West Bengal. The festival marks the first day when the sun enters into the zodiac sign of Capricorn (known as 'Makar rashi' in Hindi), and the start of longer days. The word 'Sankranti' signifies the transit of sun from one zodiac sign into another.
It is celebrated in different ways in different parts of the country with great zeal and vigour. The festival marks the beginning of the holy phase when the sacred rituals can be performed. The festival is also about letting go what all happened in the previous year, and embracing the new phase with positivity and wisdom. Unlike other Hindu festivals, Makar Sankranti is celebrated on a fixed date every year, i.e. January 14th. As the festival is round the corner, here are some messages, images and quotes you can use to wish your near and dear ones...
Makar Sankranti Denotes Great…Planning And Happy Beginnings…Daring And New Destinations…Success And Sweetness Wish…You A Great And Joyous Makar Sankranti!

The festival can be touted as the Indian version of Thanksgiving as both festivals are a celebration of harvest and people meet and share a meal together and exchange pleasantries. Famous melas like Kumbh Mela and Gangasagar Mela start during this festive occasion. Also, people perform pujas and exchange til gul or sesame candies. As per legend, on the day of Makar Sankranti, Ganga pursued Bhagirath Muni finally met the ocean and that’s why many celebrate the day by dipping in holy waters and celebrate the conjunction of ocean and river.
