India: Holi Festival
Also known as “the festival of colors” or “the festival of love”, Holi is one of the most important festivals in India celebrated by Hindus on the full moon day in March. It marks the end of winter and welcomes spring with colorful powder being thrown in the air. As part of this unique festival, special treats such as gujiyas (fried dumplings stuffed with sweetened khoya) are enjoyed by everyone.
Malta: Feast Of St Joseph
The Feast Of St Joseph is one of Malta's biggest annual celebrations held on March 19th every year. This religious holiday celebrates St Joseph who was believed to have saved Malta from famine during 1614-1616 by bringing wheat (known as ‘il-qamh’) from Sicily which he had acquired through divine intervention. Nowadays it is celebrated with a public holiday where families gather to share traditional Maltese dishes such as ftira (baked bread filled with tuna or olives), pastizzi (pastry filled with ricotta or mushy peas), timpana (pasta bake made with macaroni), and much more!
Argentina: Día de la Primavera
Día de la Primavera is a day that marks the official beginning of springtime in Argentina celebrated on September 21st every year. People usually celebrate by taking picnics out into nature while enjoying typical Argentinian dishes such as empanadas (flaky pastry filled with savory fillings like ground beef or ham & cheese).
