Diwali, popularly known as the festival of lights, is an important five-day festival in Hinduism, Sikhism, and Jainism, occurring between mid-October and mid-November.
The name Diwali is itself a contraction of the word "Deepavali" (Sanskrit: दीपावली Dīpāvali), which translates into row of lamps. Diwali involves the lighting of small clay lamps (diyas) (or Deep in Sanskrit: दीप)
filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil. During
Diwali, all the celebrants wear new clothes and share sweets and snacks
with family members and friends.
Wishing you a very happy and safe diwali!
