There is a saying in Bengali that Bengalis have "baro mashe tero parbon" which literally translated in English means that Bengalis celebrate thirteen festivals in twelve months.
Indeed, Bengalis love to enjoy festivals, wherever they are - in Kolkata, other places in India or outside India. For Bengalis, unlike many other communities of India, festival has a different meaning. It is religion, festivity, carnival and enjoyment, all rolled into one. Bengalis are perhaps the only community who has the custom of community worship (barowari puja).
Of all Bengali festivals, obviously Durga Puja is the foremost and biggest. There is now a big entertainment industry growing around Durga Puja with big budget theme pujas, cultural fest, beauty contests, food festivals as accessories.
There are 12 (or probably more) lesser known and celebrated but equally exciting festivals. Some of them, like Jamai Shashti (where the son-in-law is treated specially by the mother-in law with sumptuous food including seasonal mangoes) are perhaps unique to Bengalis.
