The detailing in Indian festivals is immaculate. I for one love living in India because of the festivities. I am a tad but late- but here's our version. So, here goes the tradition. 

Different parts of India celebrates in different ways. The way I have been taught is to bring home Ganesha's mom Gauri the previous day. She is dressed in a new sari and adorned with jewelery. The following day,she(gauri)cooks an elaborate meal for her son and together we invite Ganesha the elephant god home. The festival is often celebrated for 9 days. Food is an integral part. He is also offered flowers, fruits amongst his other favorite things. On the 9th day he is sent away by immersing him in water.
