There are many festivals in India and most of them have an old story associated with it. The festival dedicated to Lord Shiva known as ‘Maha Shivarathri’ has been celebrated for many years. The legend says that after the creation of this Universe, Goddess Parvati asked Lord Shiva about his favorite ritual among all of creation. Lord Shiva replied that the 13th night of the new moon, during the month of ‘Maagha’ was his favorite day. As a result, the 13th and 14th night in the month of ‘Maagha’ is celebrated as Shivrathri.
