The Kalasha people celebrate the Kalash festival. Kalasha people live in the Kalash valley of Pakistan. The Hindu Kush mountain range surrounds Kalash valley. The Kalash festival occurs thrice a year, in spring, summer and winter. The spring festival is called the Chilam Joshi, which starts around 13 May. Summer festival called Uchal festival, which starts on 20 August. The winter festival is called Choimus Festival, which starts on 15 December. During the festival, people not only drink, dance and have fun in general, but they also worship their Gods and spirits, giving offerings and even sacrifices. Also, young men and women choose their future husbands and wives during this festival.
