Onam is the festival that unites the whole people of Kerala. It is the biggest festival as well as the National festival of Kerala. It is celebrated in the month of Chingam, the first month of Malayalam calendar.
Onam is celebrated at the start of the month of Chingam, the very first month of Malayalam Calendar. This corresponds with the month of August-September based on Gregorian Calendar.
The story of Onam goes like this; Mahabali the asura King defeated the Devas (Gods). The Gods approached Lord Vishnu for help. Vishnu refused to join the gods as Mahabali was his own devotee, Vishnu decided to test Mahabali in the avatar of Vamana. He asked for three paces of land. Mahabali agreed to offer. Vamana grew gigantic and in two paces he cleared Mahabali’s entire Kingdom for the third pace he offered himself. For his devotion Vishnu offered a boon to Mahabali to visit his people once every year. Even though it is based on Hindu mythology every community in Kerala unanimously celebrate it. Onam lasts for ten days from Atham to Thiruvonam. Each day has its significances.
