Proposal: Hinduism

Just want to confirm whether knowing an origin of any festival is too localized or not here. Because there are lots of festivals in the Hindu religion. So I think knowing it's origin, importance is will increase our knowledge and faith for the Hindu religion.

Take a look at this sample question:
What are importance of Holi festival? Why is Holi festival celebrated?

No. The "too localized" close reason is often misused and misapplied too broadly. There's nothing about the practice of an entire community that would be considered "too localized." It would not apply in this case.


Not at all. Knowing about our festivals are very important and as you have rightly pointed out, knowing about them will make our practices more meaningful.


You are very much correct about localization of festivals, yet we should concentrate ourselves on the more broader points only, for example the Holi as only one history of its starting and only one meaning, wherever you go accross India.

Secondly, there are many small small festivals which are localized for those, yes we can have some amount of history, but again most festivals are to celebrate and give our boring life some fun.
