* Donation and importance on Sankranti day: - *
Pilgrimage baths and donations performed on the day of Sankranti are considered to be auspicious. On this day huge fairs of devotees are held at Prayag, Gangasagar etc. A Hindustani festival based on Capricorn transition to the Sun Although the Sun's fodder transitions take place in twelve zodiac signs throughout the year, for the people of India, Capricorn transition is more important than Sankranti. This is because it is from this transition that the setting of the sun begins and the people of Hindustan living in the Northern Hemisphere benefit from more light and heat in the setting.
Donating on this day is of special importance. See this verse from Devi Purana.
