Margazhi is also important due to the fact that the English New Year falls in this month and the month ends with Sankranti. Since our family lives in Tamil Nadu, we are lucky because we celebrate the English New Year, Ugadi (New Year celebrated in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Maharashtra) and of course the Tamil New Year. On the new year's eve we find many rangolis big and small welcoming the new year. The words "Welcome 2013" or "Happy New Year 2013" will be written on the periphery of many Margazhi rangoli heralding the arrival of 2013. Margazhi ends with Sankranti celebrations. It is celebrated for four days in Tamil Nadu. The first day is Bhogi, 2nd day is Thai Pongal, 3rd day is Maattu Pongal and the 4th day is Kaanum Pongal . Apart from other festivities rangolis play a very important role in celebration of Sankranti or Pongal.
