The Sun enters the constellation Dhanu (Sagittarius) around mid-December. Thus this solar month when the Sun is in the Dhanu constellation is called Dhanurmas
In this month, people gather together early in temples for Kakad Aarti. Along with this early morning aarti, various religious programs like keertan (singing religious songs with gaiety and devotion) are arranged in the villages.

Being winter solstice, this is a cold season, when one gets hungry early in the morning. Thus we have this vrat (pious observance) called Dhundhurmas vrat, which is to be followed all month long. In this period, ‘lunch’ is prepared before sunrise. After offering the fresh hot food to the Sun, the whole family, and sometimes even the whole village comes together for this early morning lunch party.
