Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated as a birthday of deity Ganesha. On Ganesh Chaturthi, Lord Ganpati is worshipped as the symbol of wisdom, gain and good luck. He is the destroyer of all evil and obstacles. We shall pray that he comes to our house with Ridhi Sidhi and Subh Labh. Where ever he is worshipped Maa Lakshmi arrives and stays till he is there.
The Ganeshotsav, the festivity of Ganesh Chaturthi, ends after 10 days on Anant Chaturdashi which is also known as Ganesh Visarjan day. This means that Ganesha has taken away all the problems from the worshipper's life.
