Celebrations in Golden Temple
The month of Phagun has 30 days in ordinary year, and 31 days in a year in which the month of February has 29 days. As a result, during a leap year, the corresponding dates of Phagun from March 1 to March 13 will differ by 1 day from those of the same month in non-leap years.
Seasons in a Sikh Calendar
Sikhs divide their year into following six seasons:
In Sikhism, the full-moon day is given importance as it was on the full-moon day of Kartik that Guru Nanak was born. Besides, as most Sikhs in Punjab have some association with agriculture, the harvest season has been accorded great importance. Two of the most important Sikh festivals, Baisakhi and Lohri, are linked to agriculture. Both these festivals are based on the solar calendar and thus fall on the same day every year.
