Some things about Krishna Janmashtami 2020
Most of the time, Krishna Janmashtami is listed on two consecutive days. The first one is for Smarta Sampradaya and the other one is for Vaishanava Sampradaya. Vaishanava Sampradaya date is the latter one. A single date for Janmashtami means that both Sampradaya would observe Janmashtami on the same date.
However many people will notice unanimity in North India on choosing the day to celebrate Krishna Janmashtami. The reason behind this unanimity is the institution of ISKCON.
The International Society for Krishna Consciousness, commonly known as ISKCON is founded on the principles of Vaishnava traditions and most followers of the ISKCON are the followers of Vaishnavism.

1. Witness the unveiling of the Krishna idol at midnight. At midnight, priests pull apart the curtains that typically hide the deity of Krishna to reveal the newly bathed and clothed deity on its decorated altar. Be sure to be present for this unveiling and take part in the kirtan that takes place immediately afterwards.
The unveiling takes place at midnight because this is the time that devotees believe the god Krishna was born.
2. Participate in group devotional songs and chants. Singing kirtan, or songs of devotion, glorification, or praise, is another important element of Janmashtami celebrations that takes place in most temples. Sing songs or repeat chants that praise Krishna in a group with other celebrators.
An example of a chant you could do would be the Hare Krishna mantra. Taking part in a kirtan in a group is a very good way of building a sense of community with the people around you and is thus a very important part of Janmashtami celebrations in many temples.
