Hindu Puja, Festivals, & Vrats 2024

The Hindu calendar lists the festivals, puja, events, and fasts that occurs during the year. Most of these festivals are determined depending on the placement of the Sun and the Moon. The Hindu calendar 2024 mostly depends on the Lunisolar calendar. Furthermore, the Hindu festivals and vrats are also determined on the basis of the location. Thus, they might vary from one place to another.

The Hindu calendar is also known as the Hindu Vrat, Puja or Tyohar calendar. In the Hindu calendar 2024, festivals depend on the occurrence of the Full Moon. On the other hand, some festivals vary depending on the changes in the Moon’s state, like Diwali, Holi, Maha Shivaratri, etc. Below we have listed all the Puja, festivals, Vrats, and other events or Parv as per the Hindu calendar 2024. 

The Hindu months in the calendar

In the Hindu calendar, the year gets counted from the Saka Era. In the calendar, one Saka marks the start of the vernal equinox. Normal days possess 365 days, while leap years have 366 days. In the Hindu calendar, an intercalary day gets added at the end of the month Chaitra. To find out the leap years in the Hindu calendar, you need to add 78 to the Saka year. So, if the sum gets evenly divided by the number 4, the year turns out to be a leap year.
