The second day is the Naraka Trayodashi, dedicated to the demon Narakasura, who was vanquished by Lord Vishnu.
The third day is the day of Lakshmi Puja, the Goddess of Prosperity. All shops are closed during this day.
The fourth day is the Bali Worship day, the day when the sacred animals are treated with care and paraded through the streets.
