Makara Sankranthi is celebrated as Pongal in Tamil Nadu. While celebrating Pongal for four continuous days, the people of Tamil Nadu celebrates Mattu Pongal as the 3rd day of the Pongal celebrations and is observed on the second day of the Thai month in the Tamil calendar. Often it comes on either 15th or 16th January. The word ‘mattu’ in Tamil signifies ‘the bull’ and thus the day of Mattu Pongal is dedicated as celebrations of the cattle, especially the bulls as they help the farmers a lot in growing crops. Mattu Pongal is the day when people come together irrespective of caste and creed to celebrate and welcome the new harvest. Mattu Pongal is celebrated with great enthusiasm not only in Tamil Nadu but also in states like Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.
