Festivals in December 2021 - Margashira Masam 2021 Festivals

The ninth month of the Telugu calendar is known as Margashira masam or Margasira month. Margashira masam takes place in the years 2021-2022, starting on December 5, 2021, and ending on January 2, 2022.
Margashira month is considered fortunate for Telugu people since it is Lord Krishna's favourite month. Lord Krishna declares himself to be the Margashiram. The month of Hemanta ruthu begins this month.

Margashira Lakshmivarapu Nomu or Margashirsha Guruvara Laxmi Vrat is observed in Andhra Pradesh's north coastal districts, such as Vizianagaram, Srikakulam, and Visakhapatnam. In this region, Guruvar (Thursday) is known as Lakshmivaram. Thursdays in the month of Margashirsha are dedicated to Goddess Lakshmi.

During the month of Margasira, the prominent festivals are Subramanya Shasti, Mokshada Ekadashi, Hanumath Vratham, Datta Jayanti, and Dhanur Sankramana punyakalam.

In Telugu Margashira masam 2021-22, Shukla Paksham begins on December 5 and concludes on December 19.

Krishna Paksham, also known as bahula paksham in Telugu, begins on December 20 and finishes on January 2, 2022.
