One should not sleep till late in the morning
Although one should get up early in the morning every day, but there are many people who get up late in the morning.

On Diwali, take special care that no irreligious work should be done under any circumstances. Respect parents and elders. Those who disrespect their parents, they do not have the grace of gods and goddesses and poverty remains. Don’t cheat anyone. Don’t lie Treat everyone with love.
Do not keep dirt in the house

Don’t sleep in the evening
One should not sleep during the day or in the evening except in some special circumstances.

In these days also keep in mind that there should not be any kind of discord or quarrel in the house. All the members of the family should live with love and maintain an atmosphere of happiness. In the houses where there is quarrel or discord, there is no grace of the Goddess. Take care not to argue or quarrel with anyone at home as well as outside.
