Janmashtami is celebrated worldwide by the devotees of lord Krishna across all Hindu traditions. It is the day when Lord Vishnu in his Krishna avatar took birth through Devaki’s womb. Janmashtami is not merely a festival. It is a time when Krishna’s followers rejoice the birth of the destructor of the evil and the mentor who guides us the way of life. Many people fast on this day and refrain from eating anything until the clock ticks 12 am. After celebrating Krishna’s birth, people break the fast by eating Makkhan and mishri, which is homemade butter with sugar crystals. In north India, the celebration is so huge that every temple is decorated and automated movable idols & scriptures are made of Krishna and other Hindu deities. People visit temples, distribute prasad and exchange gifts.
