The Hindu Pongal festival was the same day as Mohammed’s birthday

When I asked about it I mostly heard it called kite day but a lot of businesses were closed and schools were closed. There were a lot of kites flying and I could see many families on their roof tops flying kites. There was raucous loud music playing and fire crackers. I love these rangoli designs that are made with chalk outside of many doorways. They make these for many occasions. On the bigger festival days like new year’s the designs are in color, not white.
