I missed a lot of Happy's......... so
Happy New Year!
Happy Bogi (the day before Pongal)!
Happy Pongal (or Sankaranthi for some)!
Happy Maattu Pongal and Kaanum Pongal!
I did celebrate all of the above, and since I was tooo busy celebrating couldnt blog about it! but Kanu is very important at our house, so my daughter and myself braved the cold weather in Atlanta and kept Kanu. I have to thank my son who came out and took the picture..
This is traditionally done in early morning, so all the crows can have at it.....
My cousin's wife helped me remember the thing you should say while keeping it,
"Kaakka pudi Vechen, Kannu pudi Vecchen
Kaakkayum Vaazha, Kannum Vaazha
Pukkaamum Poranthaamum Pongi Pongi Vaazha"
This is celebrated for the well being of your brothers home as well as the home you are married in to.
I have a lot of pictures waiting to be on this blog, so I will write about them soooooon
