Vasant Panchami: The celebration varies across regions in Indian religions. It not only honors Saraswati but also serves as the kickstart for preparations leading up to Holika and Holi, which occur forty days later. The Vasant Utsava (festival) on Panchami is a joyful occasion celebrated forty days before the onset of spring.

This annual festival falls on the fifth day of the bright half of the Hindu lunisolar calendar month of Magha, typically falling in late January or February. As spring is hailed as the “King of all Seasons,” the festivities commence well in advance. Hindus in the Indian subcontinent, especially in India and Nepal, particularly observe this festival.

In the southern states, the same day is referred to as Sri Panchami, while on the island of Bali and among Hindus in Indonesia, it is known as “Hari Raya Saraswati.”

The worship on Vasant Panchami is dedicated to Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge and wisdom. Saraswati Puja in 2024, following the Hindu calendar, will be celebrated on the fifth day of the bright half of the Magha month. It is a day when devotees express their reverence for Goddess Saraswati.
