Maha Shivratri in 2020 is going to be celebrated on 21st February 2020. Considered the grand night when Mahakaal decides to visit his devotees and alleviate their sins, Maha Shivratri is a pious night when thousands of Shiva devotees hold vigils.
Maha Shivratri is a night dedicated to Lord Shiva, and devotees visit Shiva temples and chant hymns & verses to please this 'God of Gods'. Devotees perform 'Abhishekam' (holy bath) of Lord Shiva and offer 'Bilva' leaves along with many other things to please Lord Shiva.
Maha Shivratri falls on the 13th night & 14th day of the Krishna Paksha (Waning Phase of the Moon) in the Lunar month of Magha as per the North Indian traditions, however, in South India the Lunar month for this festival comes out to be Phalguna but either way, the festival is celebrated at the same time. Interestingly, there is a Shivratri every month on the 13th night & 14th day of the Krishna Paksha of every Lunar month throughout the year, but there is only one Maha Shivratri in a year.

Spiritual Significance of Maha Shivratri Pooja
As described by many Sages of the ancient times who have attained self-realization, Maha Shivratri is an occasion on which the entire cosmos aligns itself in a way that situations become highly supportive for a meditating person to raise his/her 'Kundalini' (Primordial Supreme Energy) upwards.
Even for those who do not meditate, the natural energy upsurge on this festival opens a divine doorway of entering into a subtle realm wherein past sins & negative karmic structures can be easily destroyed. Maha Shivratri puja vidhi includes a vigil in the name of Lord Shiva, along with a Rudrabhishek Puja to please the Mahakaal.
Why is Maha Shivratri celebrated?
Many spiritual texts and holy scriptures such as the Puranas cite many legends that encourage devotees to celebrate Maha Shivratri. One of them is, on this day, Shiva performs the cosmic dance of creation, preservation and creative destruction. This cosmic dance is known as 'Tandava'.
Hence it is said that one who connects with Shiva on this night would create positivity, nurture righteousness and destroy the evil within himself/herself. But the most important reason for celebrating Maha Shivratri is that Lord Shiva got married to Goddess Parvati on this occasion.
Goddess Parvati performed extreme penance to please Lord Shiva, and at last Lord Shiva appeared and blessed Her and accepted Her proposal. This festival signifies the union of 'Shiva & Shakti' and drives one to celebrate the ultimate divine that is present in all of us in the form of both masculine & feminine energies.
