Come February 8, 2012, Thaipusam will be celebrated in many towns across the country, mainly amongst the Tamil community.   This festival is celebrated on the full moon of  the Tamil month of Thai (January/February). Sometimes called Thaipooyam or Thaippooyam, the word ‘Thaipusam’ is derived from the month name ‘Thai’ and ‘Pusam’, which refers to a star that is at its highest point during the festival. The festival commemorates the occasion when Parvati gave Murugan a vel "spear" so he could vanquish the evil demon Soorapadam.

In Malaysia, festivals are often identified with a particular ethnic or religious group.. In the spirit on 1 Malaysia, and helping to promote unity amongst all races and ethnicity, let us mark this auspicious festival with a better understanding and respect for each other’s culture and traditions.  Happy Holiday.
