Maha Shivratri, the night of the worship of Lord Shiva, occurs on the 14th night of the new moon during the dark half of the month of Phalguna. This year it falls on a moonless Thursday night of February 27-28, 2014 when Hindus offer special prayer to the lord. Shivratri (Sanskrit 'ratri' = night) is the night when he is said to have performed the Tandava Nritya or the dance of primordial creation, preservation and destruction.

A bit of confusion on the correct date to celebrate Shivratri
Most hindu calenders show as 27th. Believe in India as well it is 27th.
