Many people keep fast (or VRAT) for eight days (from Parva to Ashthami) and eat only falahari dishes (fruits, vegetables, and dishes made with specific ingredients for fasting days). They break their fast on Navami after ceremony and prayers.

Others who can not fast for eight days continuously, observe fast on the first day (beginning of the navratri) and the last day (ashthami or eighth day) of Navratri.

Sharad Navratri is passionately celebrated throughout India. Dussehra / Vijaydashmi is celebrated on the 10th day after Navratri.
