The Onam festival was celebrated a few days ago by the people of Kerala state. Flower carpets were made in houses, and special festival food was cooked.The children in many schools made flower designs.
Little girls dressed in their finery, danced round the flower carpets.
Onam festival is a festival to welcome Mahabali, a mythical king of Kerala, who is believed to come to the Earth every year on this day, to see whether his people are happy .

Gorgeous flower carpets! Are the designs of the carpets traditional or do people create new ones? It is wonderful to see such a historical festival is being passed down from generation to generation.ReplyDelete
