Diwali

Diwali is the five-day festival of lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world. Diwali, which for some also coincides with harvest and new year celebrations, is a festival of new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil, and light over darkness.

According to Ramayana, Rama, the prince of Ayodhya was ordered by his father, King Dasharatha, to go away from his country and come back after living in the forest for 14 years. … The festival gets its name Deepavali, or Diwali, from the rows (avali) of lamps (deepa) that the people of Ayodhya lit to welcome their king

Most of the time, they are celebrated at home with family and friends. Diwali is no different. Before Diwali, people clean their homes and buy new clothes and housewares. On the day of Diwali, they decorate with flowers and places little diyas all over the house, and especially outside on balconies and driveways
