In western civilization Religion/Faith/Festivals are inflitrated by Corporate Marketing/Consumerization propaganda, removing Spiritual sacredness!
During 1920-30s Economic Crisis in west, fat model with red dress selling Cold drink was released on Christmas winter to woo customers, it got popular so trend is continued next year which ultimately became Santa Claus figure giving gifts to kids.
So, today’s fat-red Santa Claus was started as a marketing model to sell chilled soft drinks in winter cold where sales are naturally down!! Then attached to some ancient European Saint story giving gift to kids!(?)
Same way western greeting card industry discovered and exploited Friendship Day, Mothers Day, Valentine’s day, Anniversary, etc to fool people and sale their cards!
Only stupid ignorant Indians fall in their trap!

Its time to surrender yourself towards Ultimate Energy source/Universe Creator and ask for Blessing to remove Negativity / Vasanas /Greed / Selfishness / Jealousy / Wildness / Evil within us and set up Positivity/Strength/Courage/Wisdom to solve our problems & help us to live a happy life.
On 10th day there is celebration called Dashahara or Vijayadashami , which symbolizes victory of Positivity over Negativity.
Also, a time to say Thank you & Good Bye to Mother Goddess Durga for her presence & bliss so that she will come back again next year to bless us.
