Why Dhanteras is Celebrated?
This story is all about the 16-year-old son of King Hima. An astrologer predicted his son’s death on the fourth day of his marriage by a snake bite. On the fourth day of his marriage, his wife didn’t allow him to sleep all day and put all her silver and gold ornaments in a basket and kept it at the door. She also lit the lamps all around it and started singing devotional songs. She made sure that his husband, son of King Hima doesn’t sleep for the entire night.
On the next morning, when the God of death Yama arrived in the form of a snake, his eyes were dazzled by the shimmer and brightness of her ornaments and lamps at the door. Yama failed to enter the house and the next morning silently left the place. And the prince got saved from the cleverness of his wife and thus from that day Dhanteras is celebrated.
