Two countries located far apart from each other are celebrating festivals today. Some states of north east India are celebrating Jagaddhatri Puja today. Jagaddhatri is the Goddess who is assumed to hold the whole universe; hence she is the mother of this universe. People of Kolkata and Chandannagar participate most in this festival. I would also go for pandal-hopping this evening :)

And Americans are observing Halloween today. Children would be dressing up in fancy clothes, wearing masks, going door to door to collect foods. It’s a colorful festival on the eve of the “All Saints’ Day”.
