What is Bhogi?
Bhogi is the first day of the four-day Pongal Festival (பொங்கல் திருவிழா) Makar Sankranti. It is celebrated on the last day of the Tamil month Margazhi and the beginning of the month Thai. During this day we clean the house and discard the old and unwanted items, and fire them. But actually, the meaning of Bhogi is to get rid of out bad thoughts from our minds and bring positivity. Along with Spring Cleaning the House, we need to clear our minds too. That is the main thing we need to do on the day of Bhogi.
How to celebrate Bhogi:
On this Bhogi day kula Devaivam Vazhipadu(family God) is a must, also for Pillaiyar Valipadu that’s why we make Paruppu Puranam Bholi on this day. Along with Bholi, some people make Vadai too. If it falls on weekends definitely an elaborate meal with vadai payasam. This is how we celebrate Bhogi. Let’s see the Bhogi Recipe Collections.
What to Prepare for the Bhogi?
Usually, People clean the house, they use to paint the house just a week before Pongal. Also, they deep clean the house completely and make it ready for the Pandigai. I am just sharing the preparation for Bhogi and what I do. A week before I start cleaning the house. First, I start with the kitchen because that takes more time. Before I restock the groceries and wash all bottles and then restock them. Once the kitchen is over and clean the rooms collect the unwanted clothes are. I will donate the clothes to the needy. Then the whole house cleaning, we clean including the car too. Before Pongal, the whole house should be cleaned well. As usual, like other festivals cleaning the pooja room and decorating it nicely by putting kolam, manjal kungumam for God Photos and washing the Pooja Items, and keeping ready for Pooja. These are the Preparation that I use to do a day or week before Pongal.
