Thai Poosam is on Monday -Jan 21st: 

'Thai' refers to the Tamil month and 'Poosam' refers the name of the star. Thaipusam commemorates the killing of demon Tharakasuran by Lord Murugan. On this day special puja, abhishekam, yagna, archana and deeparadhanai is held for Lord Muruga.

It is celebrated with great devotion in all Lord Muruga's Temples. Many devotees fast on this day and take Kavadi, Pal Kuddam and do padayatra (walk) to Lord Muruga's Temples. Chanting of Lord Muruga hymns and special yagnas take place in temples. Special Abhishekam to Moolavar and Uthsavar with milk, curd, panchamirtham, tender coconut, sandal, paneer, honey, thiruneer, panchakavi, fruit juices and other diraviams amidst the chanting of vedas are seen in all Lord Muruga temples. After alankaaram and maha deeparadhanai, Lord Muruga is taken on a procession around the temple.
