Prem Purnima Vrat celebrates on Purnima Tithi (full moon day) of Chaitra month( March-April month). On this auspicious day married gents practice fast for the divine love and well being of their beloved wives.
In the morning husband will lit the divine flame before the deity of Prem Purnima Devi and put an apple (As apple is the fruit eating which Havva got the knowledge of love) before it. A yantra of full moon (made of silver and depicting the Prem Purnima) will be embedded in that apple. A prasadam of Kheer(rice cooked in sweet milk) will also be prepared. Through out the day husband will observe the fast.
In the evening wife will eat a piece of the apple and put some kheer before the deity. Then husband and wife will bind a sacred thread of rainbow colour(symbol of seven births) at the wrist of each other. Husband then break his fast by eating remaining apple and kheer.
