Kaanum and Mattu Pongal celebrations are colourful and vibrant. The word ‘Mattu’ translates to bulls, and Pongal is a metaphor for prosperity. On this day, people, especially farmers, offer their thanks to the cattle that help them to attain abundant harvests. The tradition of celebrating Mattu Pongal stems from the mythological story that Lord Shiva sent his bull, Nandi to earth on this day to send his message – that one should oil bath every day and eat once a month. However, Nandi delivered the wrong message that one should eat every day and oil bath once a month. This angered Lord Shiva, and he banished Nandi to permanently live with the farmers so they can get the help that they need to cultivate crops for people to eat every day.

As for Kaanum, the word Kaanum means ‘viewing and seeing’. Kaanum Pongal is the day of relaxation and enjoyment, and it implies that people spend their time arranging family trips, picnics, visiting neighbours and relatives houses.
