Krishna Jayanthi also called as Krishna Janmashtami/Gokulashtami is celebrated every year during the month of Avani on Krishna Baksha Ashtami. This year Gokulashtami falls on 5-Sep-2015.
Some families perform elaborate poojas during the sunset. We typically draw various kolams(not to miss the Kutti Krishna foot print) with rice flour and perform a simple pooja in the evening.
We also dress the little ones in the costumes of Radha and Krishna
Butter, Aval and seedai are a must for Neivedhyam
