It comes after the last new moon of the luni-solar calendar which occurs with both Sun and Moon in Pisces. Then on the following day of pratipada (i.e., first day of shukla paksha, or waxing moon), Sun enters the sign of Aries and marks the beginning of first month, Chaitra of the new Hindu calendar year.
The day of Gudi Padva is typically celebrated with lot of fun and fanfare… Oil bath and eating neem leaves are believed to be some of the must-do rituals on this day. This day is also celebrated as Samvatsara Padvo as well as Ugadi (or Yugadi) in different parts of India.
It is important to note that Gudi Padva is one of the three and half days of auspicious (shubh) muhurtas as per the Vedic considerations. Because of this, if one wants to do any auspicious work on this day then it is not as imperative to consider special muhurta (time of action) considerations. Ofcourse one can choose to do their work during the Abhijeet muhurta of the day, to make it an even more auspicious time to commence their endeavors!
