January 1, 2020 – New year
This is the first holiday of the year. Since New year begins on the very first day of a year, it is celebrated on 1st Jan, 2020.
January 14, 2020 – Lohri
Following the New year, we get our next holiday on the 14th of Jan 2020. Because this is the day we celebrate the festival of Lohri. But what is Lohri you wonder? Well, it is a festival celebrated in the Northern parts of India, particularly in and around the state of Punjab.
January 15, 2020 – Makara Sankranti, Pongal
While the North of India celebrates Lohri, the South of India celebrates it as Pongal or Makara Sankranti just a day later. So, Pongal or Makara Sankranti is celebrated in the south of India on Jan 15, 2020.
January 23, 2020 – Subash Chandra Bose Jayanti
Soon after, that is about a week from Sankranti we come across another holiday. However, this time it is not a festival but a bank holiday. It is the day Subash Chandra Bose, the famous freedom fighter was born. So 23rd of Jan 2020 is celebrated as Subash Chandra Bose Jayanti all over India.
January 26, 2020 – Republic Day
Now, as we spend another 3 days, we have another National holiday. It is the celebration of India’s Republic day. So it is celebrated on 26th of January 2020. While the Republic day was supposed to be a holiday, we might not be getting one in this year. This is because the Republic day in 2020 will fall on a Sunday.
January 29, 2020 – Basant Panchami
Finally, we come across our last holiday for the month of Jan 2020. It happens on 29th Jan 2020. It is the day we celebrate Basant Since we also perform Saraswati pooja on this day, we often call it Saraswati Pooja day as well.
