How Maha Shivratri is celebrated

On Maha Shivratri, devotees wake up before sunrise and take a ritual bath, preferably in the holy waters of river Ganga. After that, devotees then wear fresh new clothes and pay a visit to the nearest Shiva temple and do Jalabhishek on Shivling with six different dravyas including milk, yoghurt, honey, ghee, sugar and water, these six items form an indispensable part of Shivaratri, some even put devotees put some bhang on it.
After that devotees offer Akshat, Abir, Gulal etc. on Shivling. They also offer white flower, lotus flower. Devil's trumpets (dhtura ka ful) and Bilwa Leaf (belpatra) hold a lot of importance, some devote's even offer 108, 1108 belpatra on the Shiv ling. Few Bilwa leaves are kept on top of the Shivalinga to cool the hot-tempered deity. It is believed that devotees who offer a trifoliate bel patra to the Shivlinga with devotion, Lord Shiva blesses him/her with whatever the person desires.
Devotees also burn incense sticks, light lamps, offer white cloth, sweets, any five, fruits and panchamrit.
This ritual worship of Lord Shiva on Maha Shivratri continues through the day and night. In the evening, before going to the temple for Shiva Linga puja, one should again take bath. Those devotees who cannot visit the temple for one reason can perform Puja at home. Devotes stay awake and spent the night in Shiva temples by chanting 'Om Namah Shivaya' and singing hymns and verses in praise of Lord Shankar.

Difference between Shivratri and Mahashivratri

The word Shivratri is formed by the amalgamation of two words, Shiv and Ratri, where Shiv means 'Lord Shiva' and Ratri means Night. Therefore, Shivratri means the night of Lord Shiva.
Shivratri is celebrated on 14th day of every month, one day before the new moon, hence the full moon which falls on the Chaturdashi of Krishna Paksha every month is called Shivaratri only. Among the 12 Shivratri celebrated in a year, Mahashivratri is the most important one which comes on the Krishna Chaturdashi of Falgun month generally celebrated in February or March depending upon the planetary position.
