Basant Panchami falls on the fifth day (Panchami) in the waxing phase of the Hindu month of Magha. Since it marks the beginning of preparations for the pleasant (Vasant) season of spring, it is called Vasant Panchami. On this day, the annual Vasant Utsav is celebrated in various parts of the world. It takes approximately 40 days for the season to transition. This is the reason that Basant Panchami is celebrated exactly 40 days before Holi, which is said to be the festival of spring.
Vasant Panchami celebrations revolve around Goddess Saraswati. People often take this opportunity to perform Saraswati Pooja and visit temples seeking the blessings of the goddess of knowledge.
