Vaisakhi, also known as Baisakhi is an ancient harvest festival celebrated in Punjab, northern Indian. The people of Punjab celebrate over the joy of the harvest season, so it is a day of feasting. 

Vaisakhi day commemorates the first Sikh baptism ceremony and the creation of the Khalsa by 10th Guru Gobind Singh in 1699.
