Thai Masam 2021 | Thai Month in Tamil Calendar

Thai masam or Thai month or Thy masam is the tenth month as per the traditional Tamil Calendar. In 2021, Thai Masam begins on January 14 and ends on February 12.

This month is one of the auspicious months for Tamil speaking people all around the world. Some Tamil people celebrate the first day of Thai masam or Thai Pongal as the Tamil New Year day.

But traditional Tamil New Year day is celebrated as Puthandu which usually falls on Mesha Sankranti (Mesha Sankramana).

Thai masam is the favourite month for Lord Murugan and Lord Shiva. During the month, Murugan devotees carry Kavadis to Aarupadaiveedu (six abodes dedicated to Lord Murugan). Thai Pusam is one of the major festivals celebrated in Thai masam.
