Bengalis worship Goddess Saraswati on the day of `Vasant Panchami`. Bengalis wear `Vasanti` or orangish yellow clothes on this day to mark the beginning of the season `Vasant`. This occasion is very auspicious for the students as they don`t study for the day and keep their study books near the feet of the deity for her blessings which they believe is essential for their exams.

Why does only Bengal get holiday in this festival when it is celebrated in many other states?

Vasant Panchami is a public holiday. Government offices schools colleges do not operate on the day. However at the same time private offices are operational. Public transport also operates throughout the day but there is heavy traffic congestion during to processions at various places.
