I am not a Hindu but my dh and our children are. DD's star birthday is coming up and we're looking forward to her birthday puja.

Thing is, I really don't understand what the star birthday is and it's significance. Why is the puja on the star birthday rather than the actual birthday? DH hasn't really given me a great explanation and I haven't found anything online about star birthdays.

Can someone help explain this to me? Do you have any Hinduism 101 type book recommendations?
