Diwali, the Festival of Lights, is India’s great festival to celebrate the new Hindu year. This usually takes place over five days during which different divinities are celebrated.
Also known as Divali or, in Sanskrit (the sacred language of Hinduism), Deepavali or Deepawali, the festival takes place on the fifteenth day of the dark fortnight of the month of kārttika (which falls each year between October and November).
Diwali is a festivity that has something for everyone! A celebration that fosters family ties and moments surrounded by friends and loved ones. There is an exchange of gifts and sweets with each other, and it is common to see people preparing for it by buying clothes days before the celebration to wear them for the first time.
We wish peace, prosperity, and good fortune to everyone. Happy Diwali!
