I love to celebrate it. My mother used to dress me up as little Krishna every year on Janmashtami day but this year I chose to wear a shirt with Krishna painting which we got from our Guruvayur trip.  This year Janmashtami was more special as we got a lovely Krishna from Guruvayur itself- it feels like he is smiling at us every time I look at him!

We prepared many bakshanams (savouries) all Krishna’s favourites as Aachi said- butter murukku, seedai, thenkuzhal, and so many more names I forgot already and yes, his favourite butter, milk, curd and avalakki!

Krishna is alankara priyan- which means he loves to be dressed up and celebrated so Amma made all decorations like every year- flowers, thulasi, lotus flowers were used.. and yes the footsteps drawn using rice flour! They are so tiny and cute.
This year’s special was -Krishna nartanam kolam ( Krishna dance rangoli ) which has so many Krishna footsteps and we decorated kolam with flowers and deepams (diyas). This has a special meaning- Krishna comes and dances and rejoices at our place on janmashtam and to mark that we draw this kolam it seems. Interesting, no?
By evening, we were all ready for pooja, bhajan and neivedyam (prasad), yes we clicked lots of pictures, got blessings from elders and yay we got to eat yum bhakshanams!

Like a birthday party isn’t complete without the snacks and games- Janmashtami is similar no? My grandparents told me so many stories about Krishna and I was told every child is like Krishna for all the naughtiness we do!
Amma keeps all the bhakshanams in night hoping Krishna will rejoice it and looks at it next morning and does pooja. As always I love learning about new things in every festival.
Let me know about your celebration too. Happy Janmashtami everyone, may we all be blessed by Lord Krishna and be happy and smiling.
