The third day of this festival is known as ‘Mattu Pongal ‘. It is the day of cow and bull worship. As per history, On the 3rd day of pongal, god shiva sent a message to Nandi lord to inform all the people to eat once and take oil bath daily in a month. But, Nandi lord got confused and informed all people to take bath once a month and eat daily. God shiva became very angry and punished lord Nandi for this reason, he sent Nandi to guide the people for harvesting food and thus became Mattu Pongal.
On this special day, People wash their cattle. They garland them. They decorate them with various colours. Then the cattle are fed with fried cakes. At night a great feast is held. People of all classes sit together and enjoy the feast.
