Makar Sankranti is the first major Indian festival of the year, celebrated all over India. Yes, it is known by different names in different regions and by following different rituals, but the one common thing is the enthusiasm with which everyone celebrates, especially with some unique Sankranti customs, crafts and recipes!

All the yummy laddus and vadas are there as are present during other Indian festivals, but a unique feature of Makar Sankranti is the Kite Flying on this day. You might not do it big, but everyone tries their hands at flying a kite and it is a beautiful sight for sore eyes!
