One of the most significant holidays observed by married Hindu women is Karwa Chauth. Karwa Chauth will be celebrated this year on October 13 by the Hindu calendar. North and western India both participate in the national celebration.

For the health and safety of their spouses, married women observe a full-day fast on this day. Even those who practise fasting skip their daily water intake. When they see the moon, they break their fast. Women break their fast by gazing at the moon and then their husbands' faces as seen through a sieve. Following the conclusion of all rites, husbands feed their wives.

According to the Hindu calendar, Karwa Chauth occurs on the fourth day following the full moon day in the month of Kartik. The day is celebrated annually on Chaturthi Tithi, which falls during the darkest two weeks of the month of Kartik. 

Karwa Chauth is based on the lunar calendar, like many other Hindu holidays, and the date and auspicious time for the ceremonies are chosen by the moon's rising. On this day, married ladies also worship Karwa Maata in hopes of their husbands living long life.
