Be it called Pongal, Lohri, Bihu or Makar Sankranti. It is a four-day long harvest festival celebrated most commonly in the state of Tamil Nadu. It is celebrated to give thanksgiving to the Sun God for the year’s harvest.
Bhogi is the first day of the festival. The people get rid of old household items by burning them. Perum or Thai Pongal is the second day. A special ritual is performed where rice is boiled with milk in an earthen pot. The third day is Mattu Pongal. Cattles are decorated with bells and garlands and worshiped. Kaanum Pongal is the last day. During this day the leftover foods are laid on a turmeric leaf and prayers are made for the prosperity of the household.
It is widely believed that the Pongal festival was started 2000 years ago during the Chola dynasty. Pongal is a festival that shows gratitude towards nature. Then, the people had nature around them everywhere but now, because of the advancement the cities do not give space to celebrate the festival. And it makes more sense to celebrate this festival in the midst of nature.
Which is why during the festival, most people from the city go to the rural areas, hometown and villages to celebrate Pongal.
