2018 Makar Sankranti Wallpaper DownloadMakar Sankranti is one of the few ancient Hindu festivals that has been observed according to solar cycles, while most festivals are set by the lunar cycle of the lunisolar Hindu calendar. Being a festival that celebrates the solar cycle, it approximately always falls on the same Gregorian date every year (January 14), except in rare years when the date shifts by a day for that year, because of the difficulty of earth-sun relative movement. The festivities connected with Makar Sankranti are known by various names such as Lohri by North Indian Hindus and Sikhs, Sukarat in central India, Bhogali Bihu by Assamese Hindus, and Pongal by Tamil and other South Indian Hindus.source:https://en.wikipedia.org/
