New Year celebrated in Kerala is known as Vishu. The most important part of Vishu is the Vishukkani (first to be seen). An array of auspicious items like rice, linen, cucumber, betel leaves and a mirror are placed in an uruli (metal vessel) the previous night. This is supposed to be the first thing that the family members lay their eyes on in the morning.
Elders in the family give away Vishukkaineetam that are usually in the form of coins and also firecrackers to children to celebrate the New Year. Many special delicacies are prepared during Vishu, some of the specialties being Veppampoorasam (a bitter preparation of neem) and Mampazhapachadi (a sour mango soup).
