Aadi Krithigai
Most of the people's believes the month of aadi belongs to lord Amman but the fact, there is another lord is famous in the month of aadi. Offcourse! what you think it's right! That's lord Murugan. Every star is belongs to every lord and the festival of every lord pertaining of nakshatras such as Mahamaham festival happens in magam nakshatra and Karthigai Deepam celebrated at Thiruvannamalai in Krittika nakshatra. Similar aadi Krithigai is  celebrated for karthigai nakshatra in Murugan temples. The Krittika Nakshatra is favour for lord Murugan since the lord Murugan was growing with support of six karthigai pengal. The karthigai pengal( six women) are merging and becoming a nakshatra as karthigai still they are brighting in space. Most of the Murugan temples are more crowded in aadi Krithigai especially Thiruthani is most famous for aadi Krithigai. Above showing a child takes kavadi on Krithigai.

After they finished tarpana, they started offering foods to the people's and worship their ancestors by photos in their home. Above shown image belongs to tharpana given
Aadi Pooram
The person who wants to learn true spirituality, They have to learn spirituality of Andal. Most of the people said aadi Pooram also known as Andal Jayanti since Andal was born in month of aadi. We all know that Andal was born in srivilliputur and he was found under the Tulsi tree plant by periyalvar who included in twelve Alwar.
