During deepavali, we are often told to take a Ganga Snanam.

But what exactly is the meaning of Ganga Snanam? or rather Why the phrase Ganga Snanam? and What is the story behind it?

(triggered by a response to an email that i had sent to a member)
even i am eager to know why? during deepavali ganga snanam is done before sunrise on the day of the deepavali. also you must have a oil bath on this day.
