Laxmi Puja is a Hindu religious festival that falls on Purnima (full moon day) of Sukla Paksha (Light fortnight), the third day of Tihar or Deepawali. According to legend, Laxmi, the goddess of wealth and Vishnu’s wife, visits her devotees and bestows gifts and blessings upon each of them. To welcome the Goddess, devotees clean their houses, decorate them with finery and lights, and prepare sweet treats and delicacies as offerings. Devotees believe the happier Laxmi is with the visit, the more she blesses the family with health and wealth.
