    Krishna janmashtami is celebrated on 2 days - in the south. Mainly on rohini nakshatram date i.e on saturday and Ashtami thithi i.e on friday (tomorrow). Depending on the family tradition , this is done on either of the days mentioned. Hope it is clear now. We, being iyers, celebrate tomorrow .Wish u a very happy Janmashtami.

    :hello::hello:@Janakinarne
    Celebration in detail in North of India commences few hours before the clock strike twelve - midnight tomorrow , when it is believed Lord Vishnu incarnated five thousand odd years before during Krishna patcha, ashtami thithi and star Rohini attains its zenith.
    • The celebration among Hindus Brahmin community in the south in general and Chennai Tamilnadu in particular
    • Would commence in the evening tomorrow with the decoration rangoli at front yard depicting from doorsteps - tiny bright footprints of young balak Krishna - that leads to the Pooja spot where idol of baby Krishna decorated and kept on a pedestal.

    2. They Pooja or the worship for my family and I, begins tomorrow evening Friday and would be over in an hour.
    3. My family & I would chant slokas, read Vishnu Sahasranamam and play music KRISNA NEE BEGANE BORROW(?) ALAI PAYUTHEY KANNA etc followed by karpoora Aarathi and neivedhyam of Milk, raisins and snacks seedai murukku ( Anand Bhavan).

    4. In north till mid night they would observe fast, chant Geetha Govidham conduct Pooja at that GODLY HOUR and then break their fast;
    • fire crackers. Entire family members get involved in the Pooja from commencement to conclusion and followed by other entertainment known as dhal hundi - breaking pot - by raising a human pyramid in public places with large spectators.
    5. Besides answering your query, I had given some more information for aliens(!).
    6. Lord Krishna would bless you to have a boney baby delivered naturally in due time .

    Thanks and Regards.
    God I think of your Leela’s when I enjoy Rasam.
