Diwali celebrations will officially start from 13 November with the festival of Dhanteras. According to Hindu mythology, goddess Lakshmi, lord Dhanvantari, and lord Kubera (the treasurer or the god of wealth) are worshipped by devotees on this day. Dhanteras is considered to be an auspicious day for purchasing items like clothes, jewellery. This day is often associated with buying gold, silver, and silverware, and brass utensils as these articles are believed to bring wealth and prosperity. But are there some things that should not be purchased on Dhanteras? What if you want to bring home a new car on Dhanteras? Well, according to beliefs, one should not buy a new car or vehicle, for that matter, on Dhanteras.
If the legends are to be believed then buying items made of iron, steel, aluminium etc. on Dhanteras can be a doorway to bad luck for a person.
