Description of Holidays in November 2024

Here is a brief description of some of the above-mentioned holidays:

  • Govardhan Puja

Observed in north Indian states, this Hindu festival usually falls the day after Diwali. People celebrate this day by worshipping Lord Krishna and performing many rituals for prosperity. 

  • Vishwakarma Puja 

Hindu mythology considers Lord Vishvakarma as the God of creation and architect of the world. Thus, people worship Vishvakarma on this day by praying and cleansing their workplaces and tools. Offices and factories often remain closed on this day.

  • Bhai Dooj

Bhai Dooj is a festival that celebrates the bond between brothers and sisters.  According to folklore, Lord Krishna visited his sister, Subhadra, after defeating Narakasura. Since that day, Bhai Dooj has been celebrated, where sisters prepare delicious foods and pray for their brothers’ longevity and prosperity.

  • Chhat Puja

Chhath Puja is a four-day festival primarily celebrated in Bihar, Jharkhand, and Uttar Pradesh. On this day, devotees perform rituals to thank the Sun god for life on earth. People observe the day by fasting from sunrise to sunset and breaking it after performing the rituals.
