Every one looks happy on the Basant day. We also decorate our houses and shops. There are flowers all around. We blow bonfire at night. We arrange different parties and get togethers. Some children make their kites by themselves. Basant is a festival to welcome spring. Everyone enjoys flying kites on the Basant festival.

Types Of Kites
There are many different kites in Pakistan. For example;
We fly kites with the help of strings. Some are hard and some are soft. Kites are made up of paper and long thin pieces of wood; some kites strings are hard that could cut our hands and necks.

Basant is celebrated in all over Pakistan.People wear green and yellow clothes. People like to fly Kites. They eat tasty foods and different sweets. We enjoy music. We have big parties.
