New Delhi:

Maha Shivratri is one of the most auspicious Hindu festivals celebrated on the Phalguna month (the eleventh month of Hindu calendar) of Chaturdashi. This year, the festival is being celebrated on 21 February. The Chaturdashi timings will begin from 5:20 pm on 21 February and will end on 22 February, at 7:02 pm. Maha Shivratri is marked as the day when Lord Shiva and Parvati got married. It is also believed that Lord Shiva first appeared in the form of a linga on this day.

What to wear?

On this day, devotees take early bath, wear the auspicious green coloured clothes and visit the nearest Shiv temple to offer prayers to the Shiva Linga. If you can't wear on green, you also have the option to wear red, white, yellow, orange on this day. Black colour should be completely avoided as Lord Shiva did not like the colour at all. It spurred negative emotions within him. 

Devotees are supposed to wear cotton clothes as they are considered pure. Men are supposed to wear dhoti while offering prayers.
