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.
