Dhanteras ki Hardik Shuvkamnayee..!!!...A Very Happy and Prosperous Danteras to You All !!!:)...

Today is 'Dhanteras'...The very auspicious 'thirteenth' day....!!:)
"Dhan" means wealth in English and 'Tera" is the 13th day. On this very auspicious day people buy gold, silver, jewelry or utensils.

As per ancient Hindu rituals today we worship Goddess Lakshmi....The Goddess of Wealth . My humble nest is slowly getting ready for the upcoming festival...The Festival of Lights....Shubh Deepavali.
On this very auspicious day of 'Dhanteras  I am welcoming The Goddess with complete devotion....:)

Here, some Ethnic Indian Decor tips on 'Dhanteras' and Diwali or Deepavali....!!!....The Goddess is coming...:)....

With footprints of Goddess Lakshmi (Lakkhir Pa), Lakshmi's pot (Lakkhir Jhapi), fresh flowers, faux gold coins, traditional earthen diyas, loads of copper and brass puja articles, a pot full of kumkum..... am welcoming her !! Let the festivities begin.......:)

Shubh Dhanteras...:)

May The Goddess bless us with health, wealth, prosperity and bliss....!!..:)

Diwali ki Hardik Shuvkamnayee.....!!!

A Happy Diwali to You All.....:)

Hi Prabha,

A very warm welcome to Rainbow! I appreciate your lovely words.
No, nothing is permanent in my home...everything changes as per my mood -:)
Well, regarding the cleaning part I try to spend at least 20mins every day to clean up the whole house....yes, every day...come what may...-;)
Also, I love the word 'de-cluttering'...this 'simple act' helps in a long way.

I saw your beautiful comment on my FB page..thanks once again.
Hope to see you on my little space more often -;)

Best regards,
