In India, not many in people know that black is considered auspicious for Makar Sankranti. Married women in Maharashtra wear black outfits for the Haldi-Kumkum ceremony. Indian fashion is very colourful, the different festivals demonstrate that well. But most of the time, blacks and whites are not considered as adapted for these special days. However, on Makar Sankranti, women in the state dress have a traditional sanction to dress in black - married women get-together for the 'Haldi-Kunkum' ceremony in their finest black sarees and dresses. As black absorbs heat, it helps women keep warm during the festivity.
