Punjabi Festivals For 2017

The Punjabi Calendar is filled to the brink with many celebrations both religious and fun, which show their enthusiasm and passion for life. They celebrate every occasion with much gusto. Depending on the region of Punjab will depend on what days are celebrated and whether it is celebrated by the new or old Sikh Calendar. Therefore these dates and days are merely an indication of what festivals and occasions the Punjabi's celebrate. I personally don't celebrate the 10 Sikh Guru's Birthdays however they are of utmost importance to a Sikh, so I apologise if the dates have been incorrectly listed. I had to source the birthdays from many different sites of which all had different dates listed. The festivals are based on the dates that I celebrate them here in the countryside of Punjab. If I have missed any important dates please let me know. If you are reading this on BlogLovin you are best to view the original post due to formatting. Otherwise here are the dates to note in your calendar for the celebrations ahead in 2017 for Punjabi's.
