Krishna's Birthday Celebration-midnight

One of the temple areas was transformed for celebrating Krishna's Birthday. Midnight was the significant moment, but the ceremony appeared to start at 10:30 pm.  These celebrations are like traveling to a foreign country within a foreign country.  It made me reflect on American holidays:  Christmas with a decorated tree and lights, Easter with eggs in a basket, and Thanksgiving with a turkey.  Holidays are creative punctuations in the calendar.

The building outside where I live was dressed up to celebrate Krishna's Birthday
