According to Hindu literature, Narakasura (a legendary asura or demon) was assassinated on this day by Lord Krishna (an incarnation of Lord Vishnu), Satyabhama (the second most important wife of God Krishna, and avatar of Goddess Laxmi), and Goddess Kali. The day is celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm by early morning religious rituals, sumptuous breakfast, lavish lunch & dinner, and decoration of houses with earthen Diyas in the evening.

As the evening approaches, houses are decorated beautifully, Rangoli decorations are made on the entrances, earthen Diyas are ignited, and the Laxmi Puja is performed with religious rituals and rites. Sweets are distributed among near and dear ones. God Ganesha, Goddess Saraswati, and God Kubera are also worshiped on Diwali evening along with Goddess Lakshmi. It is believed that Maa Laxmi, the Goddess of Wealth & Prosperity, roam on the earth on Diwali night. Hence, people make their homes neat & clean, decorate them, and often keep their doors and windows open to welcome Goddess Lakshmi.
