8th September was Our Lady’s Birthday – it is called Nativity

Some parts of the country celebrate this day in a big way  Nine days prior to the day children attend mass taking trays of flowers that are strewn in the church as a ritual to prepare for the event

On the day of the feast loads of Faithful will gather at mass  and children in huge number bring flowers that will be showered at the statue of Baby Mary and the whole church is filled with flowers and petals.

On this occasion fresh paddy is brought by farmers that is blessed and distributed to the congregation.  A few grains of that is had along with the meal which is mostly vegetarian
