Another grand Hindu festival that is celebrated in the South is THAIPUSAM which I believe is not celebrated in the North. Thaipusam is a festival celebrated mostly on the full moon in the Tamil month of Thai Jan/Feb . The word Thai-pusam is derived from the month name Thai and Pusam, which refers to a star that is at its highest point during the festival. The festival commemorates both the birthday of Murugan also Subramaniam , the youngest son of god Shiva and his wife Parvati, and the occasion when Parvati gave Murugan a vel spear so he could vanquish the evil demon Soorapadman. The most important feature of this festival is the carrying of Kavadi . The Kavadi is carried to fullfil a vow made to Lord Murugan.
