The festive occasion is marked as per the Tirhuta Panchang calendar used in the Mithila region. On the day of Jur Sital, devotees offer prayers and seek the blessings of Sitala Mata for good health and protection from diseases, particularly those associated with the summer heat like chickenpox and smallpox. The rituals of Jur Sital often involve fasting, visiting temples dedicated to Sitala Mata, and making offerings such as fruits, flowers, and sweets. One of the main highlights of Jur Sital celebrations is the preparation of a special dish called ‘jur’, made from soaked barley or wheat grains mixed with milk, sugar, and various spices. This dish is considered auspicious and is distributed among family members, friends, and neighbours as a form of blessing.
