Maha Shivaratri means The Night of Shiva. The religious ceremonies mainly occur during night. This is a celebration observed in honor of Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva was married to Parvati on this day. Maha Shivaratri is a Hindu festival celebrated yearly on the 13th and 14th day in the Krishna Paksha (waning moon) of the month of Maagha or Phalguna in the Hindu calendar.

Same to you !
The ritual today is to be awake all night - and ask god
to take us from darkness to light ! That's why we celebrate it. I don't see many people doing that though.
