Share your photos and tell us how you are enjoying the festival.
With elaborate feasting and a host of colourful activities and celebrations planned across the state, Onam is undoubtedly the biggest festival of Kerala.
The preparations for Onam start well in advance and one of the rituals followed in most Malayalee households is creating interesting patterns to make a pookalam (rangoli made of flowers).
Onam celebrates the homecoming of King Mahabali and the pookalam is one of the many ways, Keralites welcome the erstwhile king.
Then there is the Onam Sadhya, a delicious vegetarian fare, which traditionally used to have at least 26 dishes.
We ask you, dear readers to share your photos and tell us how you are celebrating the festival.
Don't forget to add your NAME, AGE and the place where you LIVE.
