The largest festival in the indian state of kerala. It falls during the first month of malyalam calendar which is chingam (August- September) and marks the homecoming of the legendary king maveli. The festival lasts for ten days and is linked to many elements of kerala,s culture and tradition. Intricate flower carpets,elaborate banquet lunch. Snake boat races, puli Kalli,etc. onam is and ancient festival which still survives in the modern times. Kralas rice harvest festival and the festival of rain flowers . According to the legend, kerala witnessed its golden era during the reigm of king mahabali. Every body in the state was happy and prosperous and the king was highly regarded by his subjects. He was that much highly regarded among the subjects that even the Gods under indra become jealous of Mahabali, they approached Mahavishnu claiming that Mahabali is now equivalent to an Indra. Since a world with two indras represents imbalance, Mahavishnu assumed the form of a dwarf: The vamana AVatharam and tricked to kerala, the underworld, However , asMahabali is equal to an Indra, he is to wait until the next yuga where he would be the indra. In a meantime with the grace of Mahavishnu , Mahabali visits his people on an annual basis. Mahavishnu serves Mahabali as a gatekeeper in the world of Kerala. It is this visit of Mahabali celebrated onam everyyear. People including children celebrate the festival in the grand way and impress upon their dear king that they are happy and wish him well. The rich cultural heritage of kerala comes out in its best form and spirit during the tendays long festival. The most impressive part of onam celebration is the grand feast called onasdya, prepared on thiruonam. It is a nine course meal consisting of 11 to 13 essencial dishes. Onadsdya is served on banana leaves and people sit on a mat laid on the floor to have the meal.
The ever green song of onam.

ONAM not a celebration of a particular cast or region it is the celebration of all kerala Muslims, Hindu and Christian enjoy this festival together. Kerala is entirely different from Indian culture. In India everybody celebrate Deepawali a national festival, But in kerala that not celebrate widely . Kerala calendar writing language are entirely different from other state. Keralas customs rituals are entirely different from other state of India. X mass And Easter both are a religion festival but keralas people celebrate XMass every where with out cast and region. In my house and neighbors’ house I See we hanged too many stars and Luminas. And we cuts Cakes at evening and lighted candles. But it absolutely right we never went any church because no church is near my house. ID-E – MILAD AND MUHARRAM: it is the most famous festival of islam, it s before they have Fast . In kerala some Hindu peoples takes 27 th day fast. I followed that rituals three year continually. That day we visits friends house and have meals with them. But in my view that is heart touching moment. In other state of India anybody cannot see this type of relation with Hindu , Christian and Muslim. Some bad talking from that dirty peoples of other state made angry too many times. I have proud I born in a unique cultural state.
VISHU: one of the most famous celebration of hindu. The most important event in Vishu is the Vishukani. Which literally mean the first seen of the day of vishu after waking up.Vishukkani consists of a ritual arrangements of auspicious articles like raw, rice ,fresh,lemon golden, Mirror, cucumber, betel leave, Yellow flower( Cassia fistula) and a holy text and coins, in a bell metal vessal in puja room. A lightened bell metal lamp also placed along side. This is arranged in night before . on vishu the custom is to wake up at down and go to the puja room with eyes closed so that the vishukkani is the first sight of the new reason
