Tradition of taking blessings from fathers by burning sonlathi
According to this long-standing tradition, people go out in their homes with chants in many places on the night of Deepawali and burn the Sonlathi and drop its ashes on a tiraha near the house. It is believed that by doing this, fathers feel light for a year. Pleased with this, they always bless the light and prosperity of their living members.
Poorness is driven away at dawn
There is also a tradition of fleeing from homes on the next day of Deepawali i.e. Sunday dawn i.e. before sunrise. This tradition has been going on for centuries. Under this, on the night of Deepawali, housewives press old soup and a stick with a brick in the courtyard or balcony of the houses before going to sleep. On getting up at dawn, the stale mouth beat the soup with a stick, soaking the impoverishment inside the house, saying, the poor part comes out, Mata Lakshmi comes in, saying that she goes back to the nearest intersection of the house.
