Thaipongal is a harvesting festival. It is in January. Thaipongal is celebrated by the Hindus. Hindus clean and decorate their houses before the thaipongle festival.
They make pongal rice by cooking rice with milk and jaggery on this day. They wear new clothes too.
The second day of this festival is a special day. It is called Madu pongal. On this day, they give bathto bulls and cows. And put garlands of beautiful flowers around their neck. They treat them because they believe that bulls and cows help them to get a good harvest.
