The krithigai which comes in this month is called as "Karthigai Deepam" On this day, hindus decorate their houses by lighting diyas. People will go to the temples of Lord Shiva and Lord Muruga. On the day of Karthigai Deepam, the holy barani deepam(diya or light) is lighted on the top of the hill in Thiruvannamalai. To see this lighting ceremony, lakhs of people will come to Thiruvannamalai every year. Some will go for 'Girivalam' (walk around the holy mountain). Some people will even burst crackers on the day of Karthigai Deepam.
People who undergo fasting, worship the God and chanting hymns will be blessed with happy life and the God will remove all difficulties of his devotees.
