One of the most auspicious days in the Hindu calendar is Makar Sankranti, also  referred to as Sankranti or Makar Sankrant, and it is celebrated by worshipping Lord  Surya (Sun God). The day the sun enters Capricorn, or Makara is known as Makar  Sankranti. It signals the start of spring and is also referred to as Uttarayan  Punyakalam. 

Punya Kaal begins on January 15 at 8:45 AM in Western India. 

Sankranti Day is devoted to honoring Lord Sun. A particular solar day on the Hindu  calendar is referred to as Sankranti Dayo. On this auspicious day, the sun begins the  astrological sign of Capricorn, or Makar, indicating the conclusion of winter and the  beginning of longer days. The first day of Magh's month is today. 

Every 80 years, Sankranti is delayed by one day to account for the difference brought  on by the sun's rotation around the earth. On Makar Sankranti, the sun begins its  Uttarayan, or northward, trip. As a result, another name for this celebration is  Uttarayan. On this day, farmers around the nation are praying for a bountiful  harvest.
