The Feast Day of the Nativity of Our Lady represents a new life, a new presence, and brings us innumerable favors. This feast is celebrated as a thanksgiving harvest festival in some parts of India, wherein parishes bless the newly harvested grain and distribute it to parishioners.
This grain is added to milk to drink before a festive vegetarian meal, symbolizing the new harvest eaten by the entire family.
