Like Diwali, there is a tradition of lighting lamps/Diyas in households and streets during the evening of Masik Karthigai. The name Karthigai Deepam has been taken from Kartikayi or Kritika Nakshatra. It is said that the day when Kritika Nakshatra is in its dominant state, the festival of Karthigai Deepam is celebrated on the same day.  

There is a tradition of venerating Lord Shiva on the day of Karthigai Deepam. As per mythological beliefs, it is the same day when Lord Shiva transformed himself into the infinite light for proving his superiority to Lord Vishnu and Brahma Ji.
