The Celebration of Life !
A festival is an event, usually staged by a local community, which centers on some unique aspect of that community.
Among many religions, a feast or festival is a set of celebrations in honour of God or gods. A feast and a festival are historically interchangeable. However, the term "feast" has also entered common secular parlance as a synonym for any large or elaborate meal. When used as in the meaning of a festival, most often refers to a religious festival rather than a film or art festival.

On the High School, College and University Campuses:
At several College and University campuses, several International Students
/ Scholars have banded themselves into recognized student groups. First this was a means to keep in touch with ones
home, as the human connection between fellow citizens help'ed in the sociocultural transition. None the less, and more
importantly, these groups started to initiate their own social and cultural programs. The ripple affect within the sociocultural
academic ethos was awesome as it created a high character representation of their homeland and peoples and resulted in
long term relationships after graduation with Americans. Americans who got an up-front cultural education as a direct

There are numerous types of festivals in the world. Though many have religious origins, others involve
seasonal change or have some cultural significance. Also certain institutions celebrate their own festival (often called "fests")
to mark some significant occasions in their history. These occasions could be the day these institutions were founded or any
other event which they decide to comemorate periodically, usually annually.
Seasonal festivals: Seasonal festivals are determined
by the solar and the luna calendars
and by the cycle of the seasons. The changing of the season was celebrated because
of its effect on food supply. Ancient Egyptians would celebrate the seasonal inundation
caused by the Nile River, a form of irrigation,
which provided fertile land for crops. In the Alps, in autumn the return of the cattle
from the mountain pastures to the stables in the valley is celebrated as Almabtrieb.
A recognized winter festival, the Chinese New Year, is set by the lunar calendar, and celebrated from the day of the second new moon after the winter
