Travel agency Ampersand collated all the must-do festivals into a beautiful calendar for each month - you could get chilly at Japan's Sapporo Snow Festival in January, get dressed up in feathers for Brazil's Rio Carnival in March, test your ears at Italy's Verona Opera Festival in June, pray for good luck at India's Ganesh Celebrations in September or connect with your family at Mexico's Dia de Muertos in November.
