Pongal January 2021
January 14, 2021
Pongal is a harvest festival that is celebrated in Tamil Nadu for four days. It is the most popular festival and is mainly celebrated in the southern states of India for four days to devote a vote of thanks to nature. It is enjoyed in the month of Thai (January – February) during the season when crops like rice, sugarcane, turmeric, etc. are being harvested.
Pongal is likely to fall on 14th or 15th January and is the most essential Tamilian festival. Tamilians have a strong belief that family problems will be resolved during the Tamil month Thai beginning on the Pongal day. The famous saying Thai Pirandhal Vazhi Pirakkum meaning Along with joy and happiness, the month Thai will also bring new opportunities is often quoted in respect to the Pongal festival. This month is meant to be auspicious for wedding ceremonies.
