Clay pots being manufactured in Sri Lankan Sinhala and Tamil New Year at a pottery
epa03167934 A Sri Lankan potter stacks molded miniature clay pots in preparation for baking at a pottery in the suburb of Colombo, 01 April 2012. The miniature clay pots are in great demand during the 'avurudu' of New Year season as every family buys a pot for boiling milk at the auspicious moment between April 13 and 14 to light the new hearth as the sun traverses from the last zodiac sign of Pisces to the first sign of Aries. The milk boiling over and spilling onto the new hearth denotes prosperity. In addition, this is also a traditional and religious ceremony of thanksgiving for a bountiful harvest.
