Saraswati Puja, also known as Vasant Panchami, is a Hindu festival dedicated to Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge, wisdom, music, art, and learning. It is celebrated on the fifth day (Panchami) of the Hindu month of Magha, which usually falls in late January or early February in the Gregorian calendar. 

Here are some key aspects of Saraswati Puja:

1. Celebration of Knowledge and Learning: Saraswati Puja is primarily a celebration of knowledge, education, and the arts. It is considered an auspicious day to start formal education, and many schools and educational institutions organize special events or pujas dedicated to Saraswati.

2. Goddess Saraswati: Saraswati is depicted as a serene, white-clad goddess seated on a lotus, symbolizing purity and enlightenment. She holds a veena (a musical instrument) and a book or scrolls, representing knowledge and the arts.

3. Worship and Rituals: On this day, devotees set up a small altar or shrine dedicated to Saraswati, adorned with flowers, incense, fruits, and traditional offerings. They perform puja (ritual worship) which includes chanting of mantras, singing hymns, and offering prasad (blessed food) to the deity.

4. Yellow Color: Yellow is associated with Saraswati Puja. Devotees often wear yellow clothes and offer yellow flowers to the goddess, as it symbolizes the onset of spring and the blooming of mustard flowers.

5. Books and Musical Instruments: In many households, books, musical instruments, and other tools of learning and creativity are placed before the deity as a sign of respect and to seek her blessings for knowledge and skill.

6. Cultural Events: In addition to the religious ceremonies, Saraswati Puja is also celebrated with cultural events, especially in educational institutions. Students participate in music, dance, and art performances to showcase their talents.

7. Prayers for Blessings: People seek Saraswati's blessings for success in their studies, arts, and any intellectual pursuits. It's common for students to keep their textbooks and instruments in front of the goddess, seeking her guidance and support.

8. Feasting and Celebrations: Families and communities come together to celebrate Saraswati Puja with feasts. Traditional dishes are prepared and shared among family and friends.

9. Regional Variations: While Saraswati Puja is celebrated widely across India, there might be regional variations in customs and rituals associated with the festival.

Remember that customs and traditions can vary, and some families or communities might have specific practices that they follow. Saraswati Puja is a joyous occasion that promotes the pursuit of knowledge and creativity in various forms.
