Deepawali is festival of lights celebrated by Hindus on new moon day of Hindu Kartik month , were as for Tamils ‘Karthikai Deepam' which is consider to be festival of lights which falls on the full moon day of Karthikai Month. Also Hindu calendar is based on lunar calendar were as Tamil Calendar is based on solar calendar in which there is almost a month gap between hindu and Tamil calendar. That could be reason they started celebrating both festival of lights in recent years.

Usually non-brahim Tamils won’t be doing any kind of Vedic Pooja in their home. Mostly they will be doing some non Vedic Pooja on new moon day for their ancestor or local folk god were non veg is must. That will be one of the reason why those people who started celebrating Deepawali with Non Veg as like their other traditional folk festivals. Also they celebrate for only day was as other parts of India they celebrate it for 3 days.

Why do 80

Deepawali is consider to be New Year for the business community people from North India (like Marwari) and when they had dominated their business in Tamil Nadu it became a festival of shopping for the urban Tamils.
