History of Ugadi|Happy Ugadi |Happy New Year History 2015:

Yugādi,(Ugādi ‘Samvatsarādi Telugu: Ugadi/Yugadi (ఉగాది/యుగాది), Kannada: ಯುಗಾದಿ Yugadi,Konkani/Marathi: युगादि yugādi and Gudi padwa in marathi) is the New Year’s Day for the people of the Deccan region of India. The name Yugadi or Ugadi is derived from the Sanskrit words yuga (age) and ādi (beginning): “the beginning of a new age”. It falls on a different day every year because the Hindu calendar is a lunisolar calendar. The Saka calendar begins with the month of Chaitra (March–April) and Ugadi marks the first day of the new year. Chaitra is the first month in Panchanga which is the Indian calendar. In some parts of India it is known as Vikram Samvat or Bhartiya Nav Varsh.

While it is known as Ugadi in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, the state of Maharashtra refers to it as Gudipadawa. Ugadi also commemorates the commencement of a Hindu lunar calendar.
The name Ugadi has been altered from Yuga Aadi. The term Yugadi has been derived from ‘Yuga’ meaning the ‘era’ or ‘epoch’, and ‘aadi’ meaning ‘the beginning’. Hence Yugadi or Ugadi means the beginning of a new age.
Preparation for the Ugadi celebrations starts almost a week ahead. On the Ugadi day, people prepare themselves by waking up early in the morning and taking a head bath. Next, it is time for the Ugadi decoration wherein, the houses are cleaned and entrances are adorned with fresh mango leaves, which are the symbol for well being and good crops. The Ugadi rituals include the everyday ritualistic worship of God that is performed to invoke His blessings, before starting off with a new year. People engage themselves in praying for wealth, health and prosperity.
