Friday, April 14

Good Friday marks the beginning of a long weekend. Now, many individuals in India don't observe Good Friday. Although it's a day off in many areas, due to the Christian popularity within India. This is a great chance to take a break from life. It's a good time to travel for many individuals. This can be with family members, or alone. This can be to new countries, or even visiting locations within India. Or, if you'd rather, you can just sit back and relax for the weekend.

Monday, October 2

Mahatma Gandhi's birthday is a great time of celebration. He was an honorable human being who helped India to gain their independence. This day celebrates the accomplishments of his life. Many choose to read his teachings and visit temples. It marks the final day of a long weekend. Many people travel to different areas on this weekend. It's particularly common to travel to specific temples, where Gandhi would preach.

Monday, December 25

Christmas, while being a Christian holiday, is a long weekend. It lands on a Monday in 2017, marking a long weekend. Many individuals in India do not observe Christmas. For these individuals, it's a great chance to spend extra time with the family. This can be done through traveling, or staying home.
