Bhogi is the starting day of  the three day Sankranti. Bhogi will be celebrated this year on  Friday,  13th January, 2017.

The biggest harvest festival of Andhra Pradesh starts with Bhogi. A big fire is lighted in the early morning hours of Bhogi day using old furniture and items. All the members of family enjoy the warmth of the fire sitting around it and singing songs. Big Rangolis are drawn in front of the house. Gobbemmalu are placed in the middle of the Rangolis. These Gobbemmalu are made from cow dung and are thought to be a form of Goddess Laxmi. The evening of Bhogi is filled with a fun activity of showering bear fruits or Regi Pallu on children to see that no evil comes near the children and if there is any evil that should be removed. Kites flying starts from Bhogi.
