The largest and brightest celebration in the Indian religious calendar, a five-day festival of lights Diwali is celebrated from November 4.
A five-day festival of lights, the largest and brightest celebration among Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains, the most important date in the religious calendar of India is Diwali, of course! Additionally, this year, Diwali’s main day falls on Thursday, November 4.
Like Easter for Christians, Diwali falls on a different date every year. Moreover, Diwali is the celebration of Ramayanas happy ending. According to the legend, the Hindu god Rama and his wife Sita returned to their kingdom in northern India from exile in which they were held by the demon king Ravanna. In honor of this event, the subjects of Rama arranged magnificent fireworks. Therefore, Diwali is a festival of the victory of Good over Evil, of light over darkness.
Moreover, the word “Diwali” itself means rows of lighted lamps – therefore its second name is “festival of light”. Houses, shops are decorated with candles and colored lights that burn all five days. These lights are visible even from space.
Happy Diwali, all you lightened!
Lightened candles, Rangoli, fireworks, and lamps along with the festival music and delicious Indian food, are all important elements of Diwali.With this intention, Indians give each other sweets and gifts, donating clothing and food to those in need.
