There are numerous types of festivals in the world. Though many have religious origins, others involve
seasonal change or have some cultural significance. Also certain institutions celebrate their own festival (often called "fests")
to mark some significant occasions in their history. These occasions could be the day these institutions were founded or any
other event which they decide to comemorate periodically, usually annually.
Seasonal festivals: Seasonal festivals are determined
by the solar and the luna calendars
and by the cycle of the seasons. The changing of the season was celebrated because
of its effect on food supply. Ancient Egyptians would celebrate the seasonal inundation
caused by the Nile River, a form of irrigation,
which provided fertile land for crops. In the Alps, in autumn the return of the cattle
from the mountain pastures to the stables in the valley is celebrated as Almabtrieb.
A recognized winter festival, the Chinese New Year, is set by the lunar calendar, and celebrated from the day of the second new moon after the winter
