Festivals of the Sikhs

The Sikhs celebrate their festivals in their own individual ways along with some of the major festivals of the Hindus like Holi, Dusshera and Diwali. The festivals unique to the Sikhs have little to do with worship of God. Instead, the events celebrate the achievements in the lives of the 10 Sikh gurus and their teachings who is the most important person in Sikhism. The birthdays of the first and the last gurus, Guru Nanak and Guru Gobind Singh, are celebrated with all the pomp of festivals.

Bhakti is central to the religion and therefore most of their festivities are accompanied by lot of music and song. Its festivals are marked by the singing of gurbani or holy songs, and readings from the holy book.
