The word "Dhanteras" is a combination of "Dhan," which means wealth, and "Teras," which refers to the 13th day.

It is a day dedicated to the celebration of wealth and prosperity. People often buy gold, silver, jewelry, and new utensils on this day as a symbol of good luck and to invite wealth into their homes.

Dhanteras is a time for cleaning and decorating homes, lighting oil lamps or diyas, and creating a festive atmosphere.
