Karthigai Deepam 2016


Karthigai Deepam – to know more about this festival CLICK HERE. This festival is celebrated for 3 days and the first day we use to prepare veg meals as offering to god, lit the lamps at evening, perform pooja by offering the meals and then will consume it after the fasting all over the day. For the other two days, we would be litting the lamps and perform pooja in the evenings.

Karthigai Deepam is one such beautiful festival, I love the most because of the litting the lamps. I use to collect lamps all over the year whenever I find it unique and beautiful. But when it comes to earthern ware, I use to paint them before 3 days of karthigai deepam and lit it on karthigai deepam.

We use to fast the whole day, when the kids and elder people use to consume Peanut Ladoo and Roasted gram Ladoo while a big vegetarian south Indian meal would be getting ready on the other side. During evening, we lit all the lamps at our home, perform pooja by offering the meal to god. Later we consume the meals with our whole family.
