    I'm sure there must be Indian women here who do not observe Karvachauth fast. Then how do you make it a special day...What do you do on Karvachauth?

    Because of medical issues I could not observe the fast for 3 years..last year I kept the fast but mil asked me to have water in between whenever I needed to. Yes, it was not at all easy and I felt very low for next few days...only making hubby angry. He believes in humanity not idol worship or fasting. He is a lovely human. MIL also is religious but not fussy about fasts, its upto me. They dont want me to fast, ever.

    I am feeling everyone around me will have that special feeling...what can I do to make the day special...what do you ladies do who do not observe this fast?

    We don't observe Karwachauth. I have seen in movies and shows..

    May be you can keep fast but eat fruits, juice and drink water and then do the pooja in the evening..

    What is karvachauth ? Besides the religious ritual it has kind of become as indian marriage celebration day :)you are offering your thanks to god for a nice spouse and wishing for a long and healthy life for him , in my religion its not mandatory to fast but many women enjoy the day by buying new dress , makeup stuff and eating that yummy fast food, umm that Fenia, Mathis and all :) you can get up early eat that yummy breakfast with hubby and family. In the evening you can dress up nicely and can also visit temple and offer quick thanks to god with your husband for giving him a loving wife ;) Go for a long drive, sit under the stars for sometime and have a lovely meal together, enjoy each others company , what else!! . Happy karvachauth :)
