Karva Chauth is celebrated in the month of October or November, nine days before Diwali. This fast is observed mostly in North India. The married women undertake Karva Chauth fast for the long life and well being of her husband. Before sunrise the fast starts and in the evening, when the moon rises the fast is broken by them. The moon is worshipped by them and then through the pores of the strainer she views her husband’s face. In the end finally the husband fed her the first bite of food. On this occasion women dress up themselves in elegant bright dresses, apply henna on their hand and wear jewelry.
