Vinayaka chaviti well known as Ganesh chaturthi also which is Lord Ganesha's birth day who is the God of wisdom and prosperity. Ganesh chaturthi is celebrated every year on Bhadrapada monthSuddha chaviti day means fourth day after no- moon dayand it continue for 10 days. In this festival Ganesha idol is important, I always prefer Eco friendly so in my childhood also we use to brought a clay idol now after I came hear to UAE I started making Ganesha idol by my self with terracotta clay

Second important thing in this pooja is Pathri pooja (patri means leaves) and reading story of Ganesha.
