1.International Kite Festival, India
In our January global festivals list, the Kite Festival is one of them easily. Every year, the westmost part of Gujarat Uttarayan celebrates a day on the Indian calendar. This day is the day that winter transitions into summer. People from around the world make colorful and decorative kites. The festival is a notably large festival for India and has been since 1989.
Ahmedabad has celebrated this festival most vehemently, being one of the biggest cities to do so. Since this festival is held outside, it is more than likely that it will continue as planned for 2021.
2.Harbin Ice and Snow Festival, China
Harbin holds an annual festival in the northernmost section of its province. Since it is always cold in Harbin, it has earned the name “Ice City.” The ice remnants will be displaying glittering displays that make anyone want to see them. With the natural ice being lit up by artificial lights, the beauty of nature and man intertwined will have you jaw-dropping January Global Festivals.
Harbin’s full Ice And Snow World will be decorated head to toe with ice tomfoolery and the like. Make sure you’re really into the winter weather before you go: it can reach -20 degrees during the nighttime.
3.Wakakusa Yamayaki, Japan: January Global Festivals
On the fourth Saturday of every January, the citizens of Nara gather at dusk to light a bonfire in the east of Nara. This bonfire is lit to start the ceremony. Local temples take part in this ceremony as well. They set the mountain grass ablaze to help celebrate the occasion, and light fireworks. Some theories suggest that the tradition began in the past to help establish borders at the time, and has continued as a tradition for years since then.
Whatever you do for these January Global Festivals, be sure to do so safely. Rely on the guidelines to stay safe and healthy. Additionally, make sure that you respect the cultures you enter, and any guidelines that they may be respected because of COVID-19.
