Sparkly Spring festival decorations parties

Spring festivals from around the world

Christmas may still be a while off but there are many exciting celebrations that take place in Spring which can keep us entertained in the meantime. 

These festivals are observed in various cultures around the world and often involve lively traditions, colourful decorations, and community gatherings. Some even include decorating trees, much like you would during the festive period!

Here are a few well-known spring festivals celebrated in different parts of the world.


Holi, also known as the Festival of Colours, is one of the most vibrant and widely celebrated festivals in India and usually takes place in March to welcome the arrival of Spring. Participants are known to throw coloured powders and water at each other, as well as dance, sing, and enjoy festive foods.

Cherry Blossom Festival

In Japan, the arrival of Spring is celebrated with Hanami, which translates to "flower viewing." 

The Cherry Blossom Festival is a major part of Hanami, where people gather under blooming cherry blossom trees to appreciate their natural beauty. The festivities often include picnics, traditional performances, and fireworks.


Songkran is the Thai New Year festival celebrated in mid-April. It is known for its water fights and symbolises the cleansing and renewal of the year. 

People splash water on each other and engage in various water-related activities, and it is also a time for family gatherings and temple visits.


Nowruz, meaning "New Day," is the Persian New Year celebrated by many communities in Iran and Central Asia. 

It occurs on the spring equinox and typically involves seasonal cleaning, family feasts, the setting of a haft-seen table (displaying seven symbolic items), and visiting friends and relatives.


While not exclusively a Spring festival, carnivals are widely celebrated in many countries around the world, including Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago and Venice. 

They typically take place in February or March and feature parades, masquerades, music, dancing, and elaborate costumes.

These are just a few examples of spring festivals celebrated globally. Many more cultural and regional spring festivals exist, each with its own unique customs and traditions.
