Choti Diwali or Naraka Chaturdashi is celebrated a day before Diwali or Lakshmi Pooja. On Choti Diwali's morning, Abhyang Snan or a holy bath is taken before the sunrise. In the evening, diyas are lit inside the homes and the porch. Choti Diwali is the second of the Diwali festival and comes a day after Dhanteras or Dhantrayodashi. On this day, devotees crush a bitter berry under their feet signifying the slaying of demon Narakasura by Lord Krishna, the avatar of Lord Vishnu.
