What are the 5 days of Diwali?
Diwali, the Festival of Lights, spans five days of celebration. The first day, known as Dhanteras, involves the worship of wealth and prosperity. The second day, Naraka Chaturdashi or Choti Diwali, commemorates the defeat of the demon Narakasura by Lord Krishna. The third day, the main Diwali day, is dedicated to the worship of Goddess Lakshmi and marks the victory of light over darkness. The fourth day, Govardhan Puja or Annakut, pays tribute to Lord Krishna lifting the Govardhan Hill. The fifth day, Bhai Dooj, celebrates the bond between brothers and sisters. These days together create a rich tapestry of traditions and festivities during Diwali.
