Happy Makar Sankranti, Pongal, Bihu, Lohri, Uttarayan & Khichdi 🙏🌺. "The Farmer's Financial New Year"!

The Sun is a pivotal Prana (life force) of the entire creation & on this day, we pay our respects to this life force in the universe & within us.
Around these festivals, the Sun is basically moving towards North, from Makar Sankranti to Karka Sankranti (Uttarayan), which means the end of cold days (Winter) & the arrival of warmer days 🌄 (Spring).
New harvest begins now, & the joy of new harvest is shared with everyone around ❤️
In other words, a Thanksgiving Day to the Sun God 🌞 सूर्यदेव 🙏
The day signifies moving from Darkness & Illusion to Spiritual Light, Knowledge & Wisdom (cosmic meaning: longer days & shorter nights).
This festival is marked by Holy Baths (SuryaNamaskaram) in rivers; Sweets made from jaggery, groundnuts, rice, grams, corn, sesame, milk, etc; & the Pongal meal (Khichdi from newly harvested rice, along with various curries and sweets).
Ms. Li is the “副村长” (Vice Village Head) of Shacun village. In her spare time she also leads the local dancing troupe. This year she is generously opening up her home to guests of the Linden Centre for a Spring Festival meal to remember! So join us from February 4-7 for our celebrations which include traditional new year’s ceremonies, fireworks, and more ☺️🎆
💃After I was interviewed by a couple of Chinese channels I got a chance to take the pictures of this wonderful 🎆Spring Festival celebration from a zone for invited photographers and journalists, they just let me stay there! Great! 😊😃👍 Happy Chinese New Year! 🎊📍Zhouzhuang, Jiangsu, China 🇨🇳 ______________________________ 💃После интервью паре-тройке китайских каналов я была допущена в зону репортеров-фотографов с шикарным видом на церемонию 🎆встречи Китайского Нового года в Чжоучжуан! И мое счастье не знало границ! 😃😊👍Всех с Китайским Новым годом! 🎊 📍Чжоучжуан, Цзянсу, Китай 🇨🇳
#Shanghai lured @palomadutta with plum and cherry blossoms in spring, the sea of people during #SpringFestival, and ‘dancing grannies’ swinging to #Bollywood. Things were often lost in translation, but the Chinese city spoke a language she loved. #OnStandsNow
