Pongal !!

Pongal is a harvest festival celebrated to thank Sun God in the month of January in Tamil Nadu

This being our first Pongal after marriage, my parents are here to celebrate with us. We received gifts and dresses from my parents as "Thalai Pongal" gift.

On the previous day the celebrations start a day before where we clean the house and discard old things. Today morning we woke up early, wore new clothes and decorated the puja place with rangoli and placed lamps on it. On this day, people visit their relatives and friends house for a get together

The festival is then celebrated by preparing different delicacies of Pongal like Sweet Pongal and Ven Pongal, Vada, Payasam for worship.
