Karthigai Deepam is a typical festival of lights of the southern part of India and is very similar to Bhai Duj or Raksha Bandhan celebrated in other parts of the country. Here again the sisters pray for their brothers' prosperity and the brothers promise to look after them in times of trouble. Karthigai Deepam is celebrated during Purnima or full moon day when the moon is in line with the six star constellation called Karthigai. It is believed that Lord Shiva appeared on the Thiruvannamalai hills on this day and the people remember the situation by lighting a huge fire on the top of the hill.
