Pratipada-Agni

Dwiteeya-Aswini Kumars

Tritiya-Goddess Gowri

Chaturthi-Lord Ganesha

Panchami-Nagas

Sashti-Karthikeya or Skanda

Saptami-Surya

Ashtami-The Ashta Matrikas

Navami-Goddess Durga

Dasami-Dasha Disha(The ten directions)

Ekadasi-Kubera

Trayodashi-Dharma

Chaturdasi-Lord Rudra

Purnima-Moon God

Amavasya-Pitras.

He(Lord Brahma)designated Amavasya as the most important day for worship to Pitras and Tanmatras as well.

Human beings perform Tarpanas along with Kusha and Tilas on Amavasyas falling in each month which would indeed provide contentment to Pitras as well as Tanmatras.

Thus Amavasya is required to be the special day when fast is observed and tildaan is performed without fail, and that would not only give satisfaction to Pitras but the Kartas or the Performing Devotees
