Pongal is the only festival of Hindu that follows a solar calendar and is celebrated on the fourteenth of January every year. Thus, the harvest festival of Pongal symbolizes the veneration of the first fruit. However, those south Indians who have settled in the north usually celebrate only the second day. Coinciding with Makara Sankranti and Lohri of the north, it is also called Pongal Sankranti. HAPPY 2010 PONGGAL
