Uttrayan - Makarsakranti is celebrated on 14th of January every year. From this day sun starts to travel northwards making the decline of winter. After makarsakranti the days become longer, the skies clearer and the breeze cooler. In Gujarat we celebrates 2000 festivals every year. On this day we flies kits and balloons in sky from our terraces.
