The Festival of Lights

  • Celebrated by Hindus for five days during October or November to celebrate the New Year.

  • Hindus believe that this “festival of lights” will drive out the darkness which brings evil and bad luck.

  • In Sanskrit “Deepawali” is a combination of two words “Deepa” meaning light and “Avali” meaning a row.

  • Families light small clay lamps called Divas to welcome Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity.

  • There are also colourful sand-painted Rangoli designs, floral decorations and fireworks.
