      Vesak

    Correct Answer
    C. Sukkot
    Explanation
    Eid can refer to one of two Islamic festivals - Eid al-Fitr ("Feast of Breaking the Fast") marks the end of Ramadan, and Eid al-Adha ("Feast of the Sacrifice") falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah and lasts for four days until the 13th day.

    Diwali, or Deepavali, is the Hindu Festival of Lights, which is celebrated every autumn in the northern hemisphere. One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, Diwali symbolises the spiritual "victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance".

    Sukkot is a biblical Jewish holiday celebrated on the 15th day of the seventh month, Tishrei, and therefore varies from late September to late October in the Gregorian calendar. Sukkot has a double significance - the first marks the end of harvest time and therefore the agricultural year in the Land of Israel, and the second is the commemorating of the Exodus and the dependence of the people of Isreal on the will of God.

    Vesak is a holiday traditionally observed by Buddhists as "Buddha's birthday".

    There are five main Pride events in the UK gay pride calendar: London, Brighton, Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham. These are the largest events and the cities with the biggest LGBT+ populations.
