Phul dei – Children’s Festival

On this day, small children come out of their homes early in the morning singing the song Phul Dei, Chamma Dei. Children carry colorful flowers in their baskets and place them on people’s thresholds and sing this song with wishes for happiness and prosperity. Due to it being celebrated by children, Phul Dei is also called folk children’s festival. Children who place flowers on the doorstep are called Phulari.

When is Phul Dei Celebrated?

Most of the Hindu festivals are celebrated according to the position of the moon, due to which their date is fixed. But festivals based on Sankranti are celebrated according to the position of the Earth’s rotation around the Sun. Therefore no fixed date can be determined according to the Hindu calendar. Therefore, Phuldei festival can take place in any of the Hindi months of Phalgun or Chaitra.
