Decorate your entrance

Hang down some pretty torans of various sizes and colours as this makes your home feel welcoming throughout the festive season. It also acts as a welcome symbol for goddess Lakshmi to usher colour and happiness into your life. Apart from torans, some chains of lights or flowers can also be used.
Light up your house from outside

Follow the festive muhurat
