Onam is a ten-day festival that ends with Thiruvonam, which according to tales, is the day demon king Mahabali visits Earth. Despite being a demon, Mahabali was known to be a good king which is why people celebrate his return. Malayalis celebrate with a nine-course feast called Onasadya and festivities such as Onakalikal.
