I always wondered since my childhood why we celebrate festivals??Day Dreaming

We celebrate festivals because of the traditions laid out by our family and our forefathers for generations, by which we're socially accredited in our society. We blindly follow it as a habit, without questioning why. It's good for the society as festivals bestow a big group of people together, unity complies and a feel of happiness to advert the functions with many families' together results in joyfulness and a sense of well-being in a globe where terrorism is prevalent, festivals and their celebrations are very colorful and preferable.

I dissected significance to celebrate festival from Chemistry, Sociological and Neurological point of view. I really hope I'm making sense by explaining.Wink. Feel free to correct me if I've misunderstood the concept.Embarrassed.


The Chemistry of Festivals:- The fluxing of various castes of people from different walks and cultures of society, to form new traditions. E.g., Ganesh Chaturthy, was only celebrated by the Marathis of Maharashtra, now all the castes are cognizant of the Lord Ganesha and celebrate along with them. The chemistry of festival bestows about the gratification of partaking cultures, of all festivals and festivity. Festivals also postulate the partaking of food together of different tribes of people. In a nutshell, it develops felicitous hormones serotonin to celebrate these festivals.Dancing

Sociology of Festivals:- The divinity of myths we worship.Ermm. It's embedded in the writings and scriptures from the starting of the religious norms related to the festivals. e.g. the Puranas or the Sacred BOOKS like GITA. The Mahabharata and Ramayana are also sociological books which elucidate the traditions of festivals, as Deepavali and Ramnavami is celebrated, so are the birthdays and death days celebrated of saints and great people. In a nutshell, it's human nature to relate with other people and to commune with them as one in the festival.Big smile

Neurology of Festivals:- It's a radiated topic.Shocked. Here the traditional usance of cult of Relics is planted. We've Cross of Christianity, the Om and Swastika signs. A denotation between ego and secular epitome is accomplished. The symbols are very sacred and worn by people to defend them, as followed and part of festivals. I can't expressed all this here as festivals are compiled from the time of Manu. In a nutshell, it keeps one's sanity in ascertain that after one year of hectic work, we've a fest as a fresh air breather.Party

Interesting take on festivals ami! Star

I think every festival has its own significance, and some may focus on one of the aspects you have mentioned more than others. But in general, I agree with the reasons you mentioned: festivals are a chance for the community to get together and have a shared experience, and they also let us connect with our past traditions, revered personalities, and collective history, which we greatly value.

I didn't fully understand the neurological POV though Confused

Also, from an economic perspective, they can be a great boon. Spending money via gifts, special worship, decorations, etc. is part of almost all festivals.


On the topic of festivals, wish everyone a joyous diwali in advance! Smile  Party

Ami your scientific analysis of festivals is very interesting but I would say the same things that SamiR mentioned in his post.  The first 2 are easy to follow and understand and makes sense but the 3rd neurology of festivals... mere sar se upar gayaWacko

Oh teri.. Everyone finding difficult to understand neurological analysis of the festival..Geek..I made it complex like our brain.ROFL.

Anyway, In simple terms..It's all about self-introspection where you've to make statistical data how you'd spend your life in past 1 year - what you've gain, what you've lost and decide what you wanna achieve in next year -- resolution. Personally, I celebrate festivals from this POV only..Approve..

Thank you all for the replies..Big smile
