Feb 2 – 4,2007 Chiang Mai Flower Festival:

Rightly famous for its flowers, Chiang Mai is quite literally decked up in blooms during this flower festival. Floats made entirely of flower petals, some in the shape of temples and others depicting the life of Buddha, are paraded around the Thai city. Website : www.tourismthailand.org

Feb 3,2007 Dakka Marrakchia, Morocco:

Dakka is the rhythmic drumming and choral chanting performed as a tribute to the seven spiritual patrons of Marrakesh. For centuries each neighbourhood in the city has had a dakka troupe. You can see them all perform during this festival. Website: www.visitmorocco.org

Feb 9 – 20,2007 Venice Carnival:

First recorded in 1268, the carnival was a symbol of excess, with people hiding behind their masks and indulging in wild behaviour. It’s no surprise then that the event was periodically banned. But it has only managed to come back stronger each time. So don your masks and join the party. Website www.carnevale.venezia.it

Feb 18,2007 Chinese New Year:

The most important festival in the Chinese Calendar is celebrated all over the world. The biggest celebrations, of course, are in China. You can visit the country during the 15-day extravaganza that follows the New Year. Website : www.cnto.org

Feb 22,2007 Abu Simbel Festival, Egypt:

Some rulers go to extreme lengths to prove their divine right to rule. Egypt’s Ramses II built the Abu Simbel temple in such a way that on two days of the year – on his birthday and coronation day – the inner sanctum is illuminated by the sun’s rays. Website : www.egypttreasures.gov.eg



Feb 25,2007 Winter Bearfest:

This one’s for the kids. The Bearfest held at London’s Kensington Town Hall claims to have a teddy for every age and every pocket. With over 170 stalls and thousands of these cuddlies, the claim is believable. Apart from the very latest, old and rare teddy bears can also be bought. And if your favourite teddy needs repair work, then that too is possible. Website : www.hugglets.co.uk

Feb 27,2007 Kathara Deftera, Greece:

Lent may be a period of fasting and penance across the world, but in Athens it is welcomed with celebrations. The first day of Lent is known as Clean Monday or Kathara Deftera and is generally seen as the beginning of spring. Athenians fly kites and eat special Lenten dishes of vegetables and seafood.
