This festival  is devoted to the Mother Goddess known  by different  names such as  Durga, Kali, Bhavani, Amba, and Chandika, It has been celebrated in it's most unique and different ways  in various parts of India and abroad with devotional songs, bhajans and cultural programs with Garba or Dandiya Raas in the state of Gujarat. This is traditional folk dance of Gujarat. Garba is performed by placing a decorative pot with  lighted diya inside. All nine days pooja is performed and then women circles singing traditional garbas singing praises of Mataji.  At the end aarti is performed and  offering prasad is distibuted. Dandiya raas has become more popular among younger generation and  it is being enjoyed all over india and abroad as part of Navratri festivity.
  In Punjab and Delhi, It is  called Navratras. it  is a period of fasting for seven days. . On the eighth day or Ashtami, devotees break their fasts by invting  young girls  at home.  These girls are treated as the goddess on this day. They are called "Kanjak Devis". People ceremonially wash their feet, worship them and  offer   them  traditional  halwa, puri  and chana to eat along with bangles, red chunnis  with a token amount of money as shagun. The ninth day is  called Navami which means literally the ninth day of this holy and pious period.

 In West Bengal, This is one of the biggest and most important festivals for the people. For the ceremonies Pundals (temporary public booths) are formed. The ceremonies are conducted with grand prayers and mass feeding.  It  is celebrated as Durga Pooja, In pooja  beautiful idols of the Goddess are decorated and  worshipped for a period of nine days. they are  immersed on the tenth day. Different manifestations of Durga are worshipped every night.  

For cards like this and other occasions  plz  goto
In southern India Navratri is celebrated using  display of images of God and toys at home for nine days  in a grand way with poojas and archanas conducted for Goddess Durga.
  In some parts of northern India Ram Leela is performed during Navratri depicting Ramayana.  On  the tenth day according to the Ramayana  Lord Ram killed the demon Ravana and hence this day marks the victory of good over evil. The day after Navratri (i.e the tenth day) is known as Dassera. In many parts of India It is also called "Vijaya Dashmi" which is celebrated with grandness and glory.
 On  this day  giant effigies of Ravana. Kumbhakarna and Meghnad  are publicly burnt. Even though  this festival is celebrated differently, ultimate aim of this festival is   to worship  mother goddess.
