Announcing ~ Janmashtami and Ganesh Chaturthi

Priti and Purva, (Myself) both are enthusiastic and fun loving people. We both came up with sharing the joy of our festivals with Festive Food Event - 'FF'.

Last year FF celebrated all the festivals in this blogosphere with fellow blogger friends.

As Promised Festive Food is back this year with same zeal and enthusiasm to celebrate not only one but two festivals ~ Janmashtami & Ganesh Chaturthi.

The main reason to celebrate both these festivals together is that they fall almost during the same time and one important fact we all forget is --- We all know Maharishi Ved Vyas as the author of our great Epic Mahabharat, where Lord Krishna gives preaching of Bhagwad Gita to Arjun but Ved Vyas request Lord Ganesh to aid him writing in the text of the great Epic.

Kindly check the last year enthusiastic participation in the FF celebration here......

With the Rakhshabandhan event on verge of completion, its not the completion of the festivities. The festivities are on going. One can click here.....on our last year's Event Annoucement to know the importance, rituals and many more details of Janmashtami and Ganesh Chaturthi.

The one simple aim of FF Events is to enjoy the auspicious festivals with enthusiasm and vigor. Share your rituals, customs and happiness with the fellow bloggers and other readers through this lovely medium of blogging.

Ganesh Chaturthi (IAST: Gaṇēśa Chaturthī), also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi(Vināyaka Chaturthī), is the Hindu festival that reveres god Ganesha. A ten-day festival, it starts on the fourth day of Hindu luni-solar calendar month Bhadrapada, which typically falls in Gregorian months of August or September.
