    Capitalization for Double-Worded Festival Names

    1. Is it wrong to use capitalization for a festival like this - 'Alep Batar' i.e, using a capital letter for second word of the festival's name?

    The capitalisation in your post was correct but there was no need for any of the capital letters in your title except the first one.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    And it would be incorrect not to use the second capital letter.

    Thank you emsR 2d2, for pointing "but there was no need for any of the capital letters in your title except the first one". Would you also please tell me why.

    Because the second word there is also a name, as the second word in 'Matthew Wai' is also a name, so 'W' should be capitalized.
