Pongal falls on the same day as India’s national holiday, Makar Sankranti.

The Tamil month of Thai is the day on which Pongal is observed. It is a four-day festival that starts on the last day of the Margazhi month and lasts until the third day of Thai. It always falls between January 13 and January 16 in accordance with the Gregorian calendar.

Pongal Festival Celebrations

  • Bhogi Pongal is observed on the first day. Lord Indra is honored on this day. People light bonfires in front of their homes on this day, and anything old is burned in the sacred fire. Kolams consisting of red mud and rice flour paste are used to clean and adorn homes. Pumpkin flowers and cakes made from cow dung are also used as decorations.
  • The Sun God is honored on the second day, which is Surya Pongal—the first day of the “Thai” calendar. The traditional sweet meal known as “Pongal” is prepared by boiling rice and lentils in milk and jaggery. This is presented to the Lord, and the ground is covered in worshipful pictures of the Sun God.
  • The third day is known as Mattu Pongal and is devoted to cattle, which are seen as an essential component of agricultural culture. The “Pongal” that was prepared for worship is served to the cows and oxen, along with ornaments, flowers, and a bath. On this day, bullfights are held as part of the Pongal celebration.
  • The last day is Kanya Pongal when sisters offer prayers for their brothers’ health and well-being. On this day, cooked rice is also offered to poultry and birds in the shape of tiny pellets.
