Top Asian Festivities around the World

Article by Melody Wilson

The Eastern and Western parts of the world differ from each other like its two different global villages altogether. Eastern side of the world has culture, traditions and lots of associations with their roots. People in Asia are strongly attached to where they belong and have a very rich history, which they like to follow. They also tend to keep their values and up-bringing alive. Having said that, it does not mean that the people of the West, do not have any values. However, their preference to other priorities in life makes them a bit unorthodox when it comes to keeping a rich culture, history and family traditions.

Festivities in Asian countries go throughout the year. Due to a diverse population, religious beliefs and cultural values there is always something going on with one or the other population, country or city related to a particular sect.
