Phool Dei is celebrated on the first day of Chaitra or in mid March (according to Gregorian calendar). On this day young girls carry out most of the rituals and they are the most eager participants. In some places though, this festival is like a carnival and the celebrations goes on throughout the month. This festival shows the advent of spring. Dei, a special ceremonial pudding made of Jaggery, white flour and curd is offered to the visitors. On Phool Dei young girls go to every house in their villages with plates full of rice, jaggery, coconut, green leaves and flowers. They put forward their good wishes for the prosperity of the household and are given blessings and presents like sweets, fresh jaggery and money in return. In a few places even today they sprinkle auspicious flowers and rice on the doorsteps and sing: Phool Dei, Chamma Dei Deno Dwar, Bhur Bhakar Vo Dei Sei Namashkar, Puje Dwar.
