Festivals are like glue in our life. That keeps us attached to relationships in society. When we are together as a family, friends, and society it creates a sense of unity. Unity is the most powerful weapon to fight with any obstacle in life.
When the family is connected on festivals it’s most precious and joyful time. That’s why I think festivals are important in our life.
God also feel happiest when their kids are together and happy (Results of God’s creativity). I mean humans are the creativity of God. And when we all are together, celebrating festivals with each other no matter about the cast, color, poor or rich then that’s the results God is looking for.
We all work and live separately, we don’t know each other, but on festivals, you pray and wish everyone on social media and offline “Happy Diwali, “Happy Christmas”, “Happy New year”. It’s because we all are the creativity of God and we want great things.
And a person who believes in God also believes in unity, festivals, and importance of relationships in life.
Following are the reasons, why festivals are important in our life:
1. Festivals Create Harmony with nature
Festivals are connected around the world with nature and culture. In India Navratri, Dushera, Diwali, Holi, Lohri, Pongal, Karwa Chauth, Raksha Bandhan and Shivratri, etc. all these festival have religious importance. All are special occasions based on SATYUG (The ERA of truth on Earth), DWAPARYUG, TERTA YUG etc. stories and real incidents. More described in PURAN AND VEDAS.
Currently, we are living in KALYUG.
That day when god killed the devils known as the most beautiful and auspicious for people. Such as RAVAN, HIRNAKASHYAP, KANS, KHARDUSHAN etc. are killed by God after taking special AVTAR on earth to protect people from victimization and tyranny.
Now in Kalyug or previous era, it does not matter how different we are in color, salary, occupation, job, position, and money we are still taking O2 from trees and plants. We all need Water to drink and we all need food to live. And everything around us is a part of God.
Technically, God is a group of good people in Kalyug and Group of bad people is Devil. We need to identify that.
But all good people and bad people are children of God. God is everything, nature is God. Plants, Trees, birds everything that you see have the part of God.
We humans can’t live without plants, trees, water, animals etc. on the earth. Even this world is impossible without humans and other natural parts. When all part of nature connects with each other for good cause then it creates harmony in the society.
And that’s why we all connect on festivals with each other to remember that God is here and we need to follow good natural practices.
So for the development of Nature (humans, animals, water, air etc.) and harmony between people in the society, it’s important to celebrate festivals.
But the problem is we are selfish and lost our common sense as an example cutting trees, polluting water and air, cutting mountains for industries and doing thousands of devil practices online and offline.
You need to remember that there are devils in each ERA. Today’s devils use Facebook, Whatsapp and they wear Jeans and Tops, they become politicians later then rule people, they create social tension in the society, today’s devil’s teeth size is small and laughing style is changed. Today’s devils look great in person and have popularity around the world. I mean fake popularity.
But that’s why each day (morning and evening) we all do the prayer, worship in Temples, Masjeed, Gurdwara in our own style and comfort to GOD that kill the devils and protect and save our lives. And we do this more on special days and these days are festivals. Then what you think? It’s not important to celebrate to pray together to kill the devils and protect the nature from unnatural practices.
It’s important to celebrate and even make Dushera, Holi, Navratri etc. holy festivals more viral on the Internet and offline so it scares the social, political, media monsters and spread more love than hate.
That’s why it’s important to celebrate festivals so that the devils, monsters and bad people in the society or inside us got education, fear, and sense of God.
It’s important to remember that God is near and festivals are the days in which we connect with God and nature more deeply than any other days.
2. Festivals Spread Brotherhood and faith
Festivals spread brotherhood and faith in between all the humans. People on festivals are connected with God and lessons. Connection with God creates a positive attitude in their behavior towards other people.
And positive behaviors towards everyone no matter about cast, religion, colors and occupation and sense of respect for everyone it spreads brotherhood, love, and faith in the society.
That’s why festivals are important to celebrate. It’s because festivals are the oxygen of society and the life of society, brotherhood and faith are dependent on how much we care about each other.
When everyone follows his/her duty and care about the other people and the whole part of this nature then the social development begins.
Festivals are a chance to whole people of the country and world to work and connect for a cause. So that it spread brotherhood, faith, love, sense of respect and duty in between people. That’s why festivals are important occasions that have to be celebrated peacefully and without destroying others emotions and beliefs.
3. Festivals speed up the economic development
People buy more goods and services during festivals. It’s because they get a discount on luxury items and various attractive schemes on products and services from sellers.
Government and private employees get special bonus and holidays to celebrate festivals with family.
Everyone arrange and spend money for the festivals. That increase banking and cash transactions. More items sold mean more tax collection for the government. More people get money and it increases more investment later.
You can explain festivals importance in many points because of its wider reach around the world. All religion has their own method and festivals. And all are respectable.
That’s how festivals work in the society like glue and why it’s important to celebrate festivals.
Another most important thing I have to say that you don’t need to wait for festivals to spread love, happiness, care in the society and relationships. You can do it anytime according to your situation.
But remember that if you care and have the love for humanity and people more than their religion and cast indifferences then you’re great human and society, every country needs people like you. Your work and practices describe you more than your profile and status in the society.
It’s good if you share some points, why you celebrate festivals.
