Why Lakshmi and Ganesh are worshipped together

On the occasion of Diwali Lord Ganesha – the elephant-headed god is also worshiped. According to Hindu mythology, Maa Laxmi adopted Ganesha from Maa Parvati because Mata Laxmi was childless. Moreover, out of her love for her only child Ganesha she proclaimed that all her prosperity, accomplishments and luxury belongs to Lord Ganesha as well. People also believe that whosoever does not worship Lord Ganesha along with Maa Laxmi will face scarcity of wealth and success in his life.
