“Why do we celebrate festivals?” She asked her father with a quizzical expression on her face.
He looked at her with a sweet smile and answered, “We celebrate various festivals in different religions like eid, diwali and christmas. These festivals are all differnt and have a reason why they are celebrated. But in modern times, the concept of celebrating festivals has become even more important as it helps to bring people closer and spread happiness all around.”
And now, she understood what her father had said. The reason of celebrating festivals has evolved from the religious history to be a restrengthening of bonds between near and dear ones. It is a day when we take a pause from the hustle and bustle of everyday lives and spend some quality time together.
