these festivals are not just pump-and show, for entertainment.
they have an spiritual significance also.
for understanding with a common example. these auspicious days are like a "sale-season/day" as in a super market.
prayers and celebration on these days, takes us to the love of god, with little effort only. so it is like a bumber sale day in a super market.
secondly, in indian scriptures, celebrations, and festivities are another form of the god the almighty.
according to indian sprituality, god is the name for joy/happiness/comfort/feel good and over and above all the god is "bliss". and festivals are god's another menifestation.

synopsis about the festivals:
Naraka Chaturdashi:This day celebrates the victory of the God Krishna over the demon of filth, Narakasura.
As the legend goes Yamraj, the God of Death visited his sister Yami on this particular day. She put the auspicious tilak on his forehead, garlanded him and led him with special dishes and both of them together ate the sweets, talked and enjoyed themselves to their heart's content, while parting Yamraj gave her a special gift as a token of his love and in return Yami also gave him a lovely gift which she had made with her own hands. That is why this day of Bhayyaduj is also known by the name of "YAMA-DWITIYA"
yama is the brother in law of krishna , as yamuna , his sister is married to krishna.
anybody, celebrating this festival , is away from the torture of yamraj, after death, in all the circumstances.
