    This is four day puja.

    1st day - Woman take bath in nearest river, bring back holy water and wash their home. Vaishnav Food is prepared for Vrati. Vrati can eat only one meal and serving.

    2nd day- This is called Kharna and on this day Kull Devta is worshiped and offered seasonal vegetables, fruits, Jaggery Rice Kheer (rice pudding). Vrati fast all day and only eat prashad after completion of evening puja.

    3rd day - On this day Vrati offer Aark( (seasonal fruits, vegetables, Wheat flour + Jaggery+ Ghee mixed fried cookies, ghee lamps) to setting sun by standing at river banks. Vrati fast all day, can't even drink water.

    4th day- Same as 3rd day, only difference is that Aark is offered to rising sun. And puja concludes. Fasting ends.

    Chhath Puja is basically 'Sun Worshiping' which is distributed to four days in order to perform in detail because it is very fulfilling. Thousand many stories to listen. So amazing that even muslim perform for wellness of their kin, fulfilling wishes etc.

    ---------------------

    That is what i know from my own experience, you can read Chhath Puja in detail in following pdf.
