Why is Navratri celebrated twice every year in India

Navratri is celebrated two times in a year. One is during September and October which is the Ashwini Masa and the other one is during March and April which is the Chaitra masa.

If you observe carefully, both these months are the times during which the weather undergoes a major change. One is the beginning of summer and the other one indicates the beginning of winter. So, these festivals are closely related to nature and the rituals associated with this festival are also in tune with the climatic changes during this period.

Among these two Navratris, the one during the chaitra masa is called Vasant Navratri and the one during the ashwini masa is called Durga Navratri.

Vasant Navratri is not so popular and Durga Navratri is very popular in India.
