Vishu is one of the important festivals of Kerala. It marks the beginning of the New Year for Malayalees. It comes in the month of April. "Vishu Kani" is the main event of the day. The kani (first thing you see in the morning) for Vishu is a collection of auspicious articles: kani vellarikka (yellow cucumber), a brass lamp, coconut, fruits, grains, gold coins and ornaments, a yellow flower called 'konna' and a mirror. The elders in the family give money to the youngsters and bless them. It is called Kaineettam. 'Vishukanji' is the speciality of the day served along with other delicious dishes.
