Are Hindu religious festivals more social than Christian and Muslim festivals?

Such as Hindu’s Holi where every one plays with colour, Kali Puja or Diwali’s cracker explosion, Bhai fota a festival when sisters bless their brothers for good luck, are they more social?

Best Answer – Chosen by Voters

Festivals of all the religions attract all the people equally. We cannot say that one festival is more social than the other –  is our figment of imagination.

Just think of Eid or Christmas Day or Diwali; the people of all hues attach the same importance and show their social fervour and enthusiasm. The feeling can be seen on their faces. It can also be seen in the market places etc. No difference in social stature at all. All the festivals elicit equal spiritual feeling. This is really great thing.

GOD is very compassionate with us in every way, need is to use those blessings which are the results of His bounties and thank Him for everything that He gives us. We should also share these bounties with our fellow-beings. I am the person who loves God and His Creations. I love my Creator and not fear Him. My children are adjusted to life, incommensurate, to their Karma and destiny. I have served as a Sr CGO for about 38 years in a Central Govt. Presently I am serving as an Adm Offer with an Engineering College. I am a spiritual person with liberal ways of thinking. I respect all the religions as I respect mine since I understand that all the religions are the pathways to a SINGLE ENTITY - paths for connecting with Him may be different but the ULTIMATE SOURCE IS ONE. I want to be a student till last day of my life. I am a homeopath also, which I pursue as a social service only. Happy moments, I take as God's Gifts, sad ones I take as His Test for me. I believe that He will surely assist me in this Test of His, come what may. Really. I have more belief in Him than I am on my own. You can comprehend my philosophy in life from my write-ups which I write while interacting with them. I firmly believe that every person has the special characteristic which other fellows cannot have and I respect that person as such. With the grace of Almighty God, a book entitled INNER THOUGHTS which could be purchased online from http://flipkart.com. This book is based on the topics which have been penned down. That is why it is rightly said if intentions are good, everything goes well with you.

  1. I believe iftaar parties are beautiful social gatherings, cant remember any such christian festival though. But Hindus will certainly win, all Hindu festivals are enjoyed together-family, friends, locals…

    1. I have been fortunate enough to enjoy every festivals because I have served in armed forces wherein you have opportunity of mixing with everybody. Being one; having same feelings for all the festivals is the name of the game. I have enjoyed all.

      1. Yes ma’m I have been very lucky in every way. He had been very kind to me to have given the simplest habits in life – even satiety level too.

  2. I’ve nominated you for the wordpress ‘Sunshine Award’ – please follow the link for more info and how to accept: http://topofthetent.com/2014/01/22/sunshine-award-another-thank-you/
    PS. I think one person’s idea of ‘sociable’ can be another’s idea of ‘hell’ – it’s all relative, I guess. Having said that, as long as we are reaching out to others, we are being sociable – after that, it’s just a question of technique. A thought-provoking question – thanks!
