There is a lot more than just the wonderful golden beaches lined up with swaying palm trees, the sparkling blue strip of ocean that runs parallel to the yellow sands and the colorful friendly people , that adds to the vibrancy called ‘Goa’. The all year through joie de vivre of Goa, on the Western border of Indian subcontinent, is also attributed to the innumerable number of fairs and festivals in Goa, that gives the people here more reasons to celebrate.
In spite of being inhabited predominantly by the Christians, it is not only the Christian fairs and festivals, but also festivals of Hindu religion that are celebrated here with the same zeal and fervor. Other than the Hindu and Christian festivals and fairs in Goa, there are also people of other religions living in Goa, which creates a wonderful fusion of diverse cultures and traditions. It is through these fairs and festivals in Goa that one gets the idea about the wonderful underlying synthesis of all the different cultures and religions in Goa.
