Religious Education: Janmashtami

Religious Education: Janmashtami

The festival of Janmashtami celebrates the birthday of Lord Krishna and falls in August or September. Krishna is one of the Hindu faith’s most popular gods.

The festival lasts for two days. Worshippers may sing songs, tell stories of Krishna’s life, dance, rock his cradle and wait for midnight to arrive to mark his birth. Some Hindus fast during the day of Janmashtami and only eat after midnight.
