Hindus celebrate Thaipusam on the tenth month of their calendar. It coincides with the full moon at the end of January and beginning of February. The word Thaipusam is a combination of the words 'Thai', which is the Hindu month which falls between January 15 to February 15, and 'Pusam', which refers to a star which is at its brightest during the period of this festival. For Hindu's festival commemorates the occasion when Goddess Parvati bestowed upon her son Murugan the "vel" spear or lance so he could vanquish the evil demon Soorapadam. The "vel" denotes spiritual insight, ability to differentiate right from wrong, righteousness and steadfastness.
