* Because a given Tithi in USA or UK may occur on the preceding day, three separate columns are provided for USA, UK(Europe) and India, and the respective festival dates are listed as per the respective Tithi.  For more information on Tithi, click here.

** Tithi falls on two different days depending on the geographical location in the USA, typically on the earlier date for those living on the West-coast and maybe Midwest and the latter date for those living on the East coast of the USA.

If I have missed any important date or event I would appreciate if you bring it to my attention.  For any other question please do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail. Thank you.
