A festival is an event, usually and ordinarily staged by a local community, which centers on and celebrates some unique aspect of that community and the Festival.
Among many religions, a feast is a set of celebrations in honour of God or gods. A feast and a festival are historically interchangeable. However, the term "feast" has also entered common secular parlance as a synonym for any large or elaborate meal. When used as in the meaning of a festival, most often refers to a religious festival rather than a film or art festival.
The fairs and festivals are therefore the spirit of Indian culture and society. Indian fairs and festivals either refresh the myths, parables, welcome the change of seasons or kneel down before the almighty. The major celebrations in India include holi, Ganesh Chaturthi, Onam, Idul Fitr, Diwali, pushkar mela, kumbh mela, Christmas, goa fair (carnival)
