Unlike other states in India, Manipur has an almost equal number of Hindu and Christian citizens. Therefore, many of the holidays celebrated in Manipur are connected to both Christian and Hindu religions. There are also a few bank holidays in Manipur based in the Muslim religion including Idul Fitr which celebrates the end of Ramadan.

Some of the holidays celebrated in Manipur are to celebrate the harvest, such as Gaun Nagi, the Festival of the Winter Season, which is celebrated by several native tribes in the state as is Lui Ngai-Ni, a seed sewing festival celebrated by the Naga Tribe.
