Dhanvantari Trayodasi (Dhanteras) sees the families offering prayers to the Goddess of wealth (Lakshmi) to remember wealth is considered a benediction from God.
Narak Chaturdasi (Kali Chaudas) is associated with the defeat of the Demon King Narakasura by Lord Krishna, who freed 16,000 captive women. This day reminds us not to abuse our power and to channel our strength for the greater benefit of mankind.
Diwali is on this day. According to the Ramayana, the people of Ayodhya illuminated the kingdom with earthen lamps (diyas) to celebrate the return of their King, Lord Rama after he defeated the demon king Ravana who captured his wife Sita.
Govardhana Puja (Hindu New Year) is a time for reconciliation and forgiveness. On this day, Hindus offer thanksgiving to cows and worship Lord Krishna with offerings of food arranged in the form of Govardhana, a hill in Vrindavana.
Bhaiya Duj (Bhai Beej) is dedicated to the relationship between a brother and a sister. It is a day when every brother takes time to visit the home of his sister and her family.
