Chhath is primarily celebrated in the states like Bihar, Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh. During the festival, people fast, bathe in rivers and offer prayers to thank the Sun God for bestowing the bounties of life on earth and fulfilling wishes.
Devotees offer Goddess Chhath (Chhathi Maiya) and God Surya/Bhaskar (Sun) offerings and pray for blessings. It is believed that a person’s desires and prayer from the heart’s core would bring blessings.
During the time of fasting, only those foods, which are considered to be pure are consumed and cleanliness is one thing that is cared for the most during the period.
Chhath Pooja will be celebrated from November 17-20 this year
