Onam is the most significant festival of people of Kerala which is 10 day long. Of the 10 days, the last one is considered most special of all and is called the “Thiruvonam”. It is Thiru Onam meaning sacred, holy, beautiful or auspicious onam. It means same as Sri in Hindi. It is believed that on this day Lord Mahabali comes to visit his people.
Onam is celebrated in the most special rituals of its own. The day begins with prayers to evoke blessings from the almighty and then the women clean up the house and premises and decorate the front courtyard with beautifully arranged flower mat. It is arranged as a symbol of welcome to the spirit of their legendary king who once ruled the place in the golden reign.
The next effort is made in making “Onasadya” i.e. the grand meal for the day. It is made as delicious and grand as possible by preparing a number of curries and sweets. All the family member sit together to have the Onasadya and it’s a time to strengthen the bond between family members who stay far away. The rest of the day is spending playing several games and cultural events. Thus it’s a day that brings lot of joy to all the people of Kerala.
