Meanwhile, Maha Shivratri is celebrated in late winter to commemorate the upcoming summer throughout India. It falls on the fourteenth day of the dark (waning) half of the lunar month of Phalguna or Magha, a day before the new moon. Lord Shiva's devotees in India and Nepal celebrate it with pomp. Additionally, the Hindu population in the West Indies also mark the festival.

Meanwhile, as per Hindu traditions, Maha Shivratri is a night reserved for self-reflection and introspection to grow and leave behind all things that hinder our success. While some celebrate it during the morning by visiting temples and presenting offerings (milk, honey, fruits and bel leaves) to Lord Shiva, others organise pujas and jagrans at night. Devotees also observe a day-long nirjala (without food and water) fast during Shivratri. The fast is observed not only to attain Shiva's blessings but also as a test of one's determination.
