In the south, the festival is celebrated as Sri Krishnajanmashtami, Janmashtami or Gokulashtami.
The pooja is performed late in the evening,[Particularly time when Moon rises this time will differ for different places this time will mentioned in Hindu calendar Panchanga as Krishna was born at midnight. Generally, most of the sweets and savouries are prepared on that day. Normally, a Kolam(rice flour drawings on ground), also known as rangoli, drawn specially for the occasion, called ezhakoolam, decorates the front yard. Footprints representing those of Krishna are drawn from the front yard to the pooja room, representing the god entering the devotee's home.
I wish all my friends ,family members and all my well wishers a Happy Krishnajanmashtami, Janmashtami or Gokulashtami.
