Puthandu is a festival which marks the beginning of the Tamil New Year. This year, Puthandu 2020 is being celebrated on 14 April.
Puthandu falls on the first day of the Tamil month Chithirai. On this day, people follow the ritual of Kanni, which is believed to bring prosperity and happiness. In the ritual, people put three fruits on a tray, apart from silver or gold jewellery, money, areca nut, betel leaves and flowers.
Tamilians celebrate this day by waking up early, taking a bath and decorating their house. Puthandu, like any other Indian festival, is also associated with its delicacies. On the occasion of Puthandu, one sweet and the other sour dishes are prepared.
