Teej is an Indian festival which is celebrated by women during the monsoons. Hindu women observe a strict fast during this festival to obtain the blessings of Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva for a happy married life.
The word Teej comes from a red insect that emerges from the Earth during the time of monsoons. Teej also means third. Therefore Teej falls on the third day after Amavasya (new moon) and the third day after full moon of every month. But the third day after Amavasya of the Shravan month holds a special significance. It is believed that on the day of Teej Goddess Parvati came to Lord Shiva’s abode, thereby marking the re-union of husband and wife.
