How Makar Sankratri is celebrated across globe?

What is relevance and rational of Makar Sankrati in India?

Today is Makar Sankranti and we Hindus worship Sun God as source of energy or life on Earth. It is also a harvest festival.

Sun was worshiped across the globe during ancient time.

Ancient Roman worshipped Sol or Sol Indiges. Sol in Sanskrit means Surya, in Greek it’s Helios, in Latin/Italian it’s Sol, in French it’s soleil, in Germany it’s cognate etc from Mithraic/Mithras/Mitra (all again referring to Sun) civilisation. Unfortunately, they have been referred as sun-cult or enigmatic cult or Mithraic mysteries or pagan…instead of accepting the factual ancient civilisation where most worshiped the Sun god. Hindus have continued the practice of worshiping sun god till date to mark this celebration on 14th day of every January as Makar Sankranti.
