Guru Nanak's birthday is one of Sikhism’s most important holidays. It celebrates the life of the guru who was born in 1469 and at the age of 30, mysteriously disappeared for three days and returned practicing the Sikh faith.
In the weeks prior, sevadars had worked tirelessly contacting neighboring food pantries, homeless shelters, and schools to really identify those families who needed some extra help this holiday season.
Hola Mohalla or Hola Mahalla or simply Hola is a Sikh festival that takes place on the first of the lunar month of Chet which usually falls in March.
Editor's Note: In 2015, the Akal Takhat and the SGPC released a completely new calendar for Sikh celebrations. Please see the following news article for more information.
