Vaisakhi is this weekend and we’re helping you put together the perfect Vaisakhi menu! Vaisakhi also known as Baisakhi, is a historical and religious festival in Sikhism. It is celebrated on April 14th every year. For Sikhs, Vaisakhi marks birth of the Khalsa way of living in the Sikh religion.
It is additionally a spring harvest festival. The traditional colors of Vaisakhi are yellow and orange. The saffron hues represent the spirit of rebirth and sacrifice of the Panj Pyare and are also a colour of joy and celebration. When Vaisakhi is celebrated in Punjab, the golden yellow wheat fields are ready to be harvested.
