According to another theory, the festival coincides with the beginning of Rabi crop cycle (wheat-sowing), and women offered prayers for a good harvest.

According to many, the festival also celebrates the feminine bond where married ladies get to know each other and celebrate as sisters. In olden days, women were married off at a younger age to a different village and separated from their families. To ensure that she does not feel sad, women in these villages got together during the auspicious time to spend time with each other by chanting prayers, singing songs and celebrating the festival together.

During the old days, the military regime was increasingly under attack from Mughal invaders from the west.

To celebrate their sacrifice and to pray for their safe return, these women got together and used to fast from dawn to dusk. So as per tradition, the festival is celebrated with much fanfare among women in North India.

The woman celebrating Karwa Chauth wake up before dawn to eat a meal that is prepared by her mother-in-law. She then adorns herself with a traditional dress such as a saree or a lehenga. The fasting begins during sunrise, she exchanges gifts with other fasting women in her community.

In the evening, all the women gather for an evening prayer adorned in auspicious colours such as red, orange, yellow, and green. The women sit in a circle along with their thalis, an older woman or a priest narrates tales related to the festival. The women perform the puja by singing songs and passing around their thalis. After singing seven fera songs, the women offer prayers to goddess Parvati.

Once the puja is performed, they wait for the moon to rise and they watch the moon or its reflection through a vessel filled with water or through a sieve. Once the moon is viewed, the women offer water to the moon to secure their blessing. The woman offers a prayer for her husband, and the husband then offers her water to drink to break her fast.
