Makar Sankranti is observed on the 14th of January every year and marks the astronomical event of the northward motion of the sun from the tropic of capricorn towards the tropic of cancer. In India, it also marks the end of winter and the onset of spring and the progression or change (sankranti) of the sun into the sign or raashi of capricorn (makar).
