Must read

The Aluth Avurudu celebration is mainly celebrated by Sinhala and Tamil people in Sri Lanka. It falls in the month of April every year.

This is a day where we dress in our traditional dresses or clothes according to the colour theme which decides and will bring good luck and prosperity . Our elders start to make different types of sweets during this time.

The sweets you can make for Aluth Avurudu are Kokis, Konda kavum, Asmi, mung kavum, aggala and many more.

As a start we are going to the temple and we light the crackers . One of the best parts in our sinhala tamil new year is that we get lots of gifts from everyone in the family. Other best part is when all the relatives and friends get together and we start to play avurudu games, like Kana mutti bindeema, bunis kaema, Ankeliya, marking the eye for the Elephant, kamba adima which is also called tug of War and many more fun games.

Let’s join together as one united friendly family and make fun filled memories with each other and forget that we are far away from Sri Lanka.

By Chanithya Ariyadasa – Masterton
