In South India, especially in Tamil Nadu Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated on the Margazhi month of Moola Nakshathram. It is said that Hanuman was born on the moola nakshathra in Marghazi month. Hanuman was the most powerful in the three people the Heaven people, the Hell people, and the Land people. All these Gods had blessed him when he was just a 1/2-year-old child.
Significance of Betel Leaf:
A special Aakku Puja with Betel leafs and Vada mala are used in puja for the deity Hanuman by writing Jai Sri Ram on each leaf on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and oil is also carried to offer hanuman.
The Betel leafs play a significant role while offering to the deity as mentioned below:
A story says that during Ram-Ravana war, Ravana was trying his best to defeat Ram. Hanuman was carrying Ram on his back so Ravana started attacking Hanuman. Hanuman could not be killed but got hurt in the war. Ram made Ravana run out of the battleground, and himself applied oil on the scars of Hanuman to relieve him of pain. This tradition is still followed.
After the success in the war against Ravana, Sita Devi spotted hanuman in a betel leaf garden. When Hanuman bowed to her feet seeking her blessings, Sita Devi plucked few betel leaves and showered on Hanuman in order to bless him, so the ritual is still followed.
Another story depicts that when Sri Hanuman conveyed the message from Sri Rama, Sita Devi garlanded Sri Hanuman with betel leaves as a token of her joy and appreciation, as she could not find any flowers nearby.
So these are the various reasons why Lord Hanuman is worshiped with oil and betel leaves.

पटुतरघनगात्रं कुण्डलालङ्कृताङ्गं रणजयकरवालं वानरेशं नमामि ||
यत्र यत्र रघुनाथकीर्तनं तत्र तत्र कृतमस्तकाञ्जलिम् ।
बाष्पवारिपरिपूर्णलोचनं मारुतिं नमत राक्षसान्तकम् ॥
yatra yatra raghunāthakīrtanaṃ tatra tatra kṛta mastakāñjalim ।
bāṣpavāriparipūrṇalocanaṃ mārutiṃ namata rākṣasāntakam ॥
“Bow down to Hanumān, who is the slayer of demons, and who is present with head bowed and eyes full of flowing tears wherever the fame of Rāma is sung.”
There are other texts, such as the Vinaya Patrika by Tulsidas, with only slight variations in language. During readings of the Ramayana, a special puja and space ("asana", or seat) are reserved for Hanuman.

CE), Tulsidas (16th cent.), Samarth Ramdas (17th cent.), Raghavendra Swami (17th cent.) and Swami Ramdas (20th cent.). Swaminarayan, founder of the Swaminarayan sect of Hinduism, elevated Hanuman to a special position by instructing his followers that other than worshipping God through the Narayana Kavacha, Hanuman was the only deity that they could worship in the event of trouble by evil spirits.
History Behind Birth Of Lord Hanuman Or Bajrangbali:
Hanuman or Mahavira is the son of Anjana, who was an Apsara. Due to a curse, she was born on earth in the form of a female Vanara (monkey). To get relief from the curse, it was necessary for her to give birth to an Avatar (incarnation) of Lord Shiva. For this, Anjana and Kesari (Hanuman's mother and father) worshiped Lord Shiva with full devotion and intense penance (Tapasya). Their dedication and respect toward the deity pleased Lord Shiva. As a result, he granted them the boon and Hanuman was born to the couple. Therefore, Mahavira is also known as an incarnation of Lord Shiva.According to the calculations of Astrologers Hanuman was born on Chaitra pournima of Tuesday in Chitra Nakshtra and Mesha Lagnam(Aries Constellation).
Hanuman avatar is considered as the 11th Rudra avatar of the Lord Shiva in Mahabhagvata Puranam,Skanda Puranam,Brhaddharma Puranam and Mahanataka among others with great devotion, strength, knowledge, divine power, bravery, intelligence, spirit for selfless service etc. and known as Panchamukha Hanuman. He has devoted his life only for his Lord Rama and Mata Sita and never shows his bravery and intelligence without any purpose. The devotees of the Lord Hanuman always pray him for getting blessed with the same for their bright future. He is worshipped in many ways by his devotees; some meditates by repeating his name many times to get power, fame, success and etc in the life whereas some reads the Hanuman Chalisa to get the same.

The Greatness of Hanuman is explained by Lord Ram in the Ramayana as given below:
Lord Ram said to Hanuman,
‘I am greatly indebted to you, O mighty hero. You did marvelous, superhuman deeds. You do not want anything in return. … you have not asked for anything at any time. You threw away the precious garland of pearls given to you by Sita.
How can I repay my debt of gratitude to you? I will always remain deeply indebted to you.
I give you the boon of everlasting life. All will honor and worship you like myself. Your idol will be placed at the door of my temple and you will be worshipped and honored first. Whenever my stories are recited or glories sung, your glory will be sung before mine. You will be able to do anything, even that which I will not be able to!’
Devotees chant Hanuman Chalisa,Hanuman Ashtak and Sundara Kanda on this day. The recital of Ramayana and Ramcharitmanas is also considered auspicious on this day. The epic Ramayana, is wholly centered on the narrative of Rama, who is the scion of the family tree of Raghu of the Sun Dynasty and the crown prince of Ayodhya who is also considered in Hindu tradition as one of the Avataras of Vishnu. However, Tulsidas never alludes to Ramcharitmanas as being a retelling of Valmiki Ramayana. He calls the epic Ramcharitmanas as the story of Rama was stored in the mind (Mānasa) of Shiva before he narrated the same to His consort Parvati. Tulsidas claims to have received the story through his guru, Narharidas.Most Hindu devotees also fast on the day or on the previous day.
There is a religious faith suggesting that its recital brings harmony to the household. Many Hindus believe that if you do not have time to read the whole Ramayana, you should read the Sundara Kanda.This is the most blessed Kandam or section in the whole of Ramayana and therefore it gains this unique name 'Sundara Kandam'. 'Sundaram' means Beauty. Lord Hanuman's other name is 'Sundara'. In Sundara Kandam, Sage Valmiki speaks about the achievements of Hanuman. For Hanuman nothing is impossible. His attitude always reminds us self-confidence, faith and devotion to Rama, fearlessness, and trustworthiness.
Significance of 7 dohas of Sundara Kanda:
There are 7 dohas in Sundara Kanda of Ramcharitmanas which contain the word sundar. It is said that a person who recites these earns the credit of a full Sundara Kanda recital.
At the end of the Sundara Kanda parayana recite this sloka:
Yatra yatra Raghunatha KirtanamTatra
tatra kritha mastakanjalim
Bhaspavaan paripurna lochanam
Marutim namata rakshasanthakam
Jitendrium Buddhimatam Varishtham
Shri Ramdutam Sharanam Prapdye.
Aarti Kije Hanuman Lala ki, Dustdalan Raghunath kala ki
Jake bal se giriwar kanpe, Rog dosh jake nikat na jhanke
Anjani putra maha bal dayee, Santan ke prabhu sada sahayi
De beera Raghunath pathaye, Lanka jaari seeya soodhi laye
Lanka so koti Samudra Si khaayi, Jat pawansut bar na layee
Lanka Jaari asur sanghare, Seeya Ramjee ke kaaj saware
Lakshman murchhit pare Sakare laye Sajeewan pran ubaare
Paithi patal tori jam kare, Ahiravana ki bhuja ukhare
Baaye bhuja asur dal mare, Dahine bhuja sant jan tare
Sur nar muni jan aarti utare, Jai jai jai Hanuman uchare
Kanchan thal Kapoor lou chhayi, Aarti karat Anjana mayi
Jo Hanuman ji ki Aarti gawe, Basi Bakuntha parampad pawe.
Shri Guru charan saroj raj, nij man mukur sudhari
Varnau Raghubar vimal jasu, jo dayak phal chari
Buddhihin tanu janike, sumiro Pavankumar
Bal buddhi vidya dehu mohi, harahu kalesh vikar.
Jay Hanuman gyan gun sagar, jay Kapis tihun lok ujagar.
Ramdut atulit bal dhama, Anjani putra Pavansut nama.
Pavantanay sankat haran, Mangal murati rup
Ram Lakhan Sita sahit, hriday basahu sur bhup.
Why one should read Hanuman Chalisa?
Hanuman Chalisa is to be read to glorify Lord Hanuman or Vajrangaji. This method of approaching Lord Hanuman will help one get the favour of Lord Ramachandra, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Independently approaching Lord Ramachandra is not as effective as apporaching Him through His pure devotee. It is stated by Lord Shiva in the Padma Purana:
“[Lord Shiva told the goddess Durgä:] ‘My dear Devi, although the Vedas recommend worship of demigods, the worship of Lord Vishnu is topmost. However, above the worship of Lord Vishnu is the rendering of service to Vaishnavas, who are related to Lord Vishnu.’
Lord Shiva saying the importance of Hanuman Chalisa to Durga Devi
Mahavir vikram Bajrangi, kumati nivar sumati ke sangi
Kanchan baran viraj suvesha, kanan kundal kunchit kesa
Hath vajra aur dhvaja biraje, kandhe munj janeu saje
Shankar suvan Kesrinandan, tej pratap maha jagvandan
Vidyavan guni ati chatur, Ram kaj karibe ko atur
Prabhu charitra sunibe ko rasiya, Ram Lakhan Sita man basiya
Sukshma rup dhari siyahi dikhava, vikat rup dhari Lanka jarava

Laye sanjivan Lakhan jiyaye, Shri Raghubir harashi ur laye
Raghupati kinhi bahut barai, tum mam priya Bharathi sam bhai
Sahas badan tumharo yash gave, asi kahi Shripati kanth lagave
Sanakadik Brahmadi Munisha, Narad Sarad sahit ahisha
Yam Kuber Digpal jahan te, Kavi kovid kahi sake kahan te
Tum upkar Sugrivahin kinha, Ram milai Rajpad dinha
Tumharo mantra Vibhishan mana, Lankeshvar bhaye sabh jag jana
Jug sahasra yojan par bhanu, lilyo tahi madhur phal janu
Prabhu mudrika meli mukh mahi, jaladhi langhi gaye achraj nahin
Durgam kaj jagat ke jete, sugam anugraha tumhare tete
Ram duare tum rakhvare, hot na agya binu paisare
Sab sukh lahai tumhari sarna, tum rakshak kahu ko darna
Aapan tej samharo apai, tino lok hank te kanpe
Bhut pisach nikat nahin ave, Mahabir jab nam sunave
Nase rog hare sab pira, japat nirantar Hanumat bira
Sankat te Hanuman chhudave, man kram bachan dhyan jo lave
Sab par Ram tapasvi raja, tinke kaj sakal tum saja
Aur manorath jo koi lave, soi amit jivan phal pave
Charo jug partap tumhara, hai parsidh jagat ujiyara
Sadhu sant ke tum rakhvare, asur nikandan Ram dulare
Asht siddhi navanidhi ke data, us var din janki mata
Ram rasayan tumhare pasa, sada raho Raghupati ke dasa
Tumhare bhajan Ram ko bhave, janam janam ke dukh bisarave
Antakal Raghuvar pur jai, jahan janma Hari bhakta kahai
Aur devta chit na dharai, Hanumat sei sarva sukh karai
Sankat kate mite sab pira, jo sumre Hanumat balbira
Jai Jai Jai Hanuman gusain, kripa karahu gurudev ke nai
Jo shat bar path kar soi, chhotahin bandi maha sukh hoi
Jo yah padhe Hanuman chalisa, hoi siddhi sakhi gaurisa
Tulsidas sada Hari chera, kije nath hriday mahan dera.
