Legend Pertaining to Sankashti Chaturthi. 

Maa Parvati created Lord Ganesha from the dirt of her body and asked him to sit and went for a bath. While going for the bath, Maa Parvati said that he should not allow anyone to enter but during this, her husband, Shiv Ji, came. Since Maa Parvati had ordered Lord Ganesha not to allow anyone to come in, So he did not allow Shiv Ji to come in.

Lord Ganesha did not allow Shiv Ji to come in despite the latter’s constant insistence. With this denial, Shiv Ji became furious and sliced his head. When Maa Parvati came to know about this, she felt highly sad. In order to relieve her from this grief, Shiv Ji fixed the head of a newly born elephant on Lord Ganesha. The sliced head of Lord Ganesh fell on the Moon. Since then, it is believed that the tradition of offering water to the Moon started.
