How to celebrate Dhanteras festival of wealth

On Dhanteras, Lakshmi the Goddess of wealth is worshiped to provide prosperity and well being. It is also the day for celebrating wealth, as the word Dhan literally means wealth and Tera comes from the date 13th.In the evening, the lamp is lit and Dhan Lakshmi is welcomed into the house. Alpana or Rangoli designs are drawn on pathways including the goddess footprints to mark the arrival of Lakshmi. Aartis or devotional hymns are sung eulogizing Goddess Lakshmi and sweets and fruits are offered to her.Hindus also worship Lord Kuber as the treasurer of wealth and bestower of riches, along with Goddess Lakshmi on Dhanteras. This custom of worshiping Lakshmi and Kuber together is in prospect of doubling the benefits of such prayers.People flock to the jewelers and buy gold or silver jewelry or utensils to venerate the occasion of Dhanteras. Many wear new clothes and wear jewelry as they light the first lamp of Diwali while some engage in a game of gambling.
