Pongal 2009 | Tamil Calender 2009 | Pongal 2009 Festival Date

Pongal 2009

Pongal 2009

Pongal is celebrated on this date itself and also to celebrate the coming of spring. There are several ways of calculating the Hindu solar calendar, so Pongal date may vary by up to one day in various parts of India depending whether local custom dictates the use of the old or new Hindu calendar or astronomical tables. Pongal or Thai Pongal is also called Makara Sankaranthi, since it is celebrated on the first day of Thai when the Sun enters the Makara Rasi (Capricornus). This signals the end of winter and the onset of spring throughout the northern hemisphere. For the next six months, the days are longer and warmer.

As the day of Pongal celebration is decided according to the solar calendar, the Pongal date remains the same every year. Following are the date on which the four days of Pongal are celebrated:

Bhogi Festival : 13th January. (Every Year)
Pongal : 14th January. (Every Year)
Maathu Pongal : 15th January. (Every Year)
Kaanum Pongal : 16th January. (Every Year)
