Dhoti is a very popular attire for males and Saris are the highly preferred costume for the women celebrating this festival. This day sports a variety of dishes in each household that are prepared and distributed enthusiastically to showcase the culinary skills of the women in the household. Pujas, family get-togethers and visiting temples, places, family elders, relatives and friends are common activities noticed on this day.

How to celebrate Ugadi

On the day of Ugadi, houses are cleaned and decorated and hangings made of mango leaves are tied on the doorways.

Designs and patterns drawn in front of the houses called as Rangolis are a common feature of Ugadi celebrations.
