I fully agree with Mr. Oberoi's Answer. Moreover Parvati Ji, also fasted on Karwa Chouth for Shiv Ji, and in Mahabharat, Krishna Ji also advised Draupdi to keep fast for Arjun's long life, on kiarwa chauth.

The festival of Karva Chauth was emerged as a day to celebrate the season of autumn and enjoy the company of friends and relatives. But later on, many mythological legends were added to give it a religious touch. This festival is glorified and widely solemnized by the Hindus and Sikh of north-western India. As the name signifies, Karva meaning a clay pot and chauth corresponding to the fourth, this festival is commemorated on the the fourth day after the Full Moon in Kartik month of Hindu calendar.
