Celebration of Diwali
Clean the house
Clean the house and business premises thoroughly before the first Diwali day, or the Dhanteras. Do the laundry, clean all the rooms and sort out your papers in both your home and business. It is like a spring cleaning of sorts, a cleansing ritual to rid yourself of any unnecessary elements in your environment.Draw small footprints using rice flour and vermillion powder over your house this is a way of indicating that you are awaiting the arrival of the Goddess.
