•Day 1: Dhanteras - The Festival of Wealth. On the day of Dhanteras, Hindus consider it auspicious to buy silver, gold or at least a utensil for their home as they believe that buying "Dhan" (asset) in some form of metal will bring luck and prosperity for their family. They celebrate Dhanteras by lighting clay diyas and singing devotional songs. Businessmen perform Dhanteras puja by worshipping their "bahi-khatas" (accounts books).
