we eat a lot . LOL because we have fasting for a month. we don't eat and drink from 4am to 6PM. it happened for a month. when the fasting month is over, we call it Idul Fitri or lebaran. the best part is, it's a long holiday. so, we can have fun with family.

In my country, we have moon festivals, which is the celebrating of good harvest and also the great scene of full moons. There were a legend of a lady with a rabbit living on the moon from the Chinese culture folklore. Peopel usually make moon cake and other great meals for that day. Also, we have lunar new year in China too.

I agree with alexhonig, the festival of Saint John is one of the most popular, but some years ago that I'm not enjoying as I wanted. I guess with the passing of time such events lose their meaning, then that one matures and realizes the true meaning of this event

in india we have many festivals according to the hindu religion and the festivals i enjoy the most are diwali,ganeshchathurdi and sankranthi as per my province and on the eve of sankranthi we celebrate the day by flying kites for which the festival is very famous and we can find the sky filled with kites on that day and there are many organisations which organise competions on flying kites and diwali is what we call as lightening festival and on that day we fire lots of fireworks and make the night glow just like a day and its really a wonderful experience and all the indian festivals are mostly based on two indian epics mahabharath and ramayana.we also have some other famous festivals for which we give a lot of importance like dussera,holi(colours festival),etc

I have had organize japanese's festival 3 times. I think this festival mean thank god wished for them can have a good air, season, fishing and harvest. In this festival, many groups dance on the road and everybody stand and watch they dance. It' difference from my country is the festival of my country, nobody dance on the road. They only dance in the theatre or some where have mean of history. Every month, it'll be organize a time depend on village. Japanese's festival only organize at the same time in everywhere of japan.

In India there are many festivals. Almost every state has a festival to offer. The state I live in also has plenty of festivals. Festivals also mean holidays. Some of the famous festivals in my country are Deepavali aka Diwali, Holi, Navaratri, Christmas.

In my country we have a festival to celebrate the bounty of harvest its called as sankranthi.On this day there is a bull which is colorfully decorated and taken around town.People fly kites with a thread coated fine glass called manja.This is mainly to cut the kite flown by others.A day prior to sankranthi is called Bhogi when women folk colorfully decorate the front portion of the house with rangoli(POWDERED COLOR STONE)on this day a sweet rice is prepared called pongal.
